Anyone else going to see them tomorrow?






The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, fly the world-renowned Delta Formation over downtown Nashville on June 12. The Blue Angels traveled to Nashville in preparation for their performance at The Great Tennessee Air Show in Smyrna, Tenn., June 14-15.

The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds are a site to see. I had the honor to help support both back in 1973 at the Top Gun Base in Miramar, CA.

They are. Seen them do their show over Lake Michigan when I was a kid. It was an annual event.
Went to Pensacola a few years ago so my boy could see them, but we were rained out.
So he'll finally be able to see them tomorrow.

Buzzed my office and house yesterday. What time are they flying tomorrow? Have baseball game at 10:45 in Smyrna so I'm sure we'll see quite a bit.

Not to keep hijacking, but there is just as much of a pecision show behind the stage to keep these birds going at the pace that they perform.
I am so proud to be an American and also to have served for this great Country of ours.

Think the air show starts at noon and goes to 4.
I assume the BA's will probably be last.
Think there's a P-51 mustang in the mix as well which I'd like to see.

The 'practice' show they put on in Pensacola is very very nice. I still like seeing those birds in the air, I practically start singing the National Anthem.

Worked the shows for many years be it Static Display, SAR or set up and teardown. They put on a great show up front and the maintainers keep those aircraft in top shape for the show.
