Friday/ the Blue Angels are here

It is the peak of summer festivities here in the Pacific Northwest, and the start of Seafair Weekend. Highlights are the Blue Angels airshow, and the hydroplane race on Lake Washington.

Here is my quickie iPhone picture of the Blue Angels as they tore through the sky above Seattle today. They are very, very— ear-splittingly LOUD

The six Blue Angels flying in a delta formation today. The Angels are McDonnell Douglas-made F/A-18 Hornets: twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jets. They were first used in combat (bombing raids) in Libya, in 1986.
