Blue Angels Homecoming airshow 2014
Mister W created the topic: Blue Angels Homecoming airshow 2014
Just got back from the USA this week. Thought I would share some of my photos from the Blue Angels Homecoming airshow which was held at NAS Pensacola. It was a free airshow with a crowd of over 100,000 spectators.
As well as the Blue Angels, there were some civilian acts (sadly I missed part of it due to traffic). There was a guy doing aeros in Beech 18. Michael Goulian was there in his Extra 330 and a formation team of 10 RVs. It was also the first time I had seen an F-35 JSF that wasn't wooden mock up. Yes, they do fly! Two of them flew overhead then did some circuits.
The Blue Angels flight display is truly a must see. Eventhrough number 3 had some difficulties and returned, the team on the ground got a spare number 3 going for the last half of the 40 minute show. A friend of mine got a great photo of the two number 3s parked nose to nose.
On our to Pensacola, we stopped in Mobile, Alabama at the Battleship park. I heard they had one of my favorites there. An early model SR-71 Blackbird! this one was the A-12 variant.
Anyway. Hope you enjoy my photos.
Best flying display I have ever seen.
Two U.S. Navy F-35 JSF
They do fly!
Not a wooden mock up this time.
Team AeroDynamix. This team was so big, I had to zoom right out and almost put the camera on the ground to fit all of them in the shot.
Good ol' Fat Albert C-130
The diamond 4
Solo pairs at 400+mph and 200 feet.
18 inches apart (about half a metre). Number 3 went missing. The show must go on!

Tentatively scheduled for all both days will be extraordinary aerobatics by performers such as John Klatt in his “Screamin’ Sasquatch’ Jet Waco and David Martin will pilot his Brietling CAP 232. Roger Buis will amaze the crowd in “Otto the Helicopter” and Matt Younkin will excite everyone with aerobatics in his Beech 18. Neal Darnell will also be on hand to impress visitors in his Shockwave Jet Truck.
