They provide an awesome entertaining show! I’ve seen them a few times from our boat for their show over the Chesapeake Bay at Annapolis. Adrenaline pumping!
Now, THAT would be cool…watching Angels from a boat. NICE.
Especially when they flew UNDER the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in formation. OMG!
Wow! Got any shots of that?
I did poor filing of photos years ago, who knew I’d be taking a zillion more! That being said, lol, I did some digging and found one year’s show photos but didn’t have any under-the-bridge shots. That series of photos was from 2009, looks like we were anchored quite a ways north of the CBay bridge and Severn River that year.
Did you ever post any on your blog?
Awful for me to say, I have no idea. I didn’t understand categorizing and tags when I started blogging, so my beginning blogging years is an unorganized mess. 🙁
LOL! I completely understand.
Hundreds and hundred of boats anchor out on the bay to watch them. Party day!
Sounds like lots of fun!
I can’t imagine being in that plane
Me, neither. Where is the barf bag?
The g-force or whatever it’s called… pressing you back…God bless those people who fly them…I couldn’t
Reminds me of a story that Jerry Doyle told on his radio show (Michael Garibaldi from Babylon 5) some years ago (he died in July 2016). He graduated from Embry Riddle in FL. He knew how to fly. He was invited for a ride-along in a fighter jet (don’t remember the pilot buddy or the type of craft). He asked his buddy if he should have breakfast before the flight. The pilot said (paraphrasing): “…sure but, I’d recommend bananas.” When Doyle asked why, the response was: “…because they taste pretty much the same, coming back up.”
That is a great story….yea I could see that. I don’t ride roller coasters because of the drop…I can spin all day…but that take off? Oh hell no
How’s this for “spinning”:
NO…I would not like that lol…no side to side like a tilt a whirl
So, just spinning…no flipping the Max…🤢🤮😆
No….no flipping…I’m not a pizza or a pancake.
