Blue Angel's Home Base

I have been working in Pensacola, FL, home of the Navy Blue Angels.  They have scheduled practice sessions where you are right on the edge of the airfield, and it's free.  I went there this morning to check it out, and being this close is really cool.  I have seen them in Chicago a number of times but this was kind of special being that close.  Really impressive, at one point they came from behind were we were watching and it about knocked me over.   I have a cousin, Jay Varner, whose son was the team leader, but I never was able to see him fly.  I really like the photos from today though, clear skys and a beautiful day in Pensacola.

  1. Hi Jim -- Gorgeous pictures. We met you at the air show yesterday morning. You took a picture of us with another couple. It was nice meeting you. You got some great shots of the Blue Angels. I'm sure you have more to post.
