Blue Angels at Duluth Air Show 2014

Despite some really bad weather was able to see the Blue Angels perform at the Duluth Air Show on August 24th, 2014. The cloud deck was low so they had to perform their “flat” routine. I’m sure the normal routine is even more spectacular but what they performed was truly inspiring.

See the full Blue Angels gallery.

Of course you gotta get the mirror shot. Happy I didn’t miss it.

The Mirror

Here’s a great example of the precision and teamwork involved. The lead pilot flys the routine while the pilot next to him follows. Except for the lead pilot the rest just follow the plane next to them. Easy right? They make it look as if it is.

Follow the leader.

Finally a movie I put together with stills and video clips to capture the action. Hope you enjoy and you can see the best photos in the Blue Angels gallery.
