Great photos of the Blue Angels, but check out the other items of interest at the bottom of the last picture. Click on the link below for some real good shots by an amateur photographer known as the Z-man.

Click and Paste My wife June is from Vallejo which is 30 miles from San Francisco. I met her when the USS Orleck DD-886 was in the Shipyards at Mare Island in 1966. I was also stationed at Treasure Island on two different Occasions, first time on a reserve trainer the USS Twining DD-540, 1970-1971 and the second time was shore duty at the T I Galley, 1976-1978, loved it and was so close to home.

It is probably because of the crash a couple of years ago that killed another fine pilot. They were in Millington in 2007, we usually see them every other year. When flying their patterns in pratic before the show they fly right over my house. They should be here this year around August or September. I need to check their schedule.

This Years Fleet week (2008) the Angels were not allowed to do the high speed pass that low to the water. No idea why as it was missed by a lot of people who were standing near me.
