Blue Angel Airshow 2010

On July 10, 2010, we went to another Blue Angel Airshow. This year I enjoyed the airshow blueangels2010more than last year. In 2009, I was not able to get into the water because of the surgery on my foot. This year I could enjoy the airshow from in the water. Once again, we traveled to Santa Rosa Island by boat. We met several of our friends behind Flounder’s Restaurant. Here is a photograph of the Blue Angels passing over the beach.

Blue Angel Airshow 2009

On July 10, 2009, we went to another Blue Angel Airshow. Each year we look forward to the airshow at Pensacola Beach. We went by boat early Saturday morning. We met many of our other blueangels2009friends, who also went to the airshow by boat. Going by boat is much easier than by car. The beach traffic is usually backed up by 7am. Brian’s girlfriend, Brittany, went with us. Our niece, Nicole, also joined us for the airshow. It was her first time at the Blue Angel Airshow. Dan joined us for the airshow for a second year. The previous year was rained out, so this was actually Dan’s first time to see the airshow too. We blew up our water trampoline for the kids to play on. My foot was still wrapped from surgery in June. I could  not get in the water. A funny fact, was that for me to use the bathroom, Susan would have to push me to shore in an intertube. By the end of the day, Susan and I had the trip to shore downpacked. Here is a photograph of the three cousins, Nicole, Brian and Aaron.

Blue Angel Airshow 2007

On July 21st, 2007, we attended our third Blue Angel Air Show at Pensacola Beach. This airshow blueangels2007was special because it was the first time they performed at home after the death of Pilot Kevin Davis during an airshow.  At the end of the airshow, they performed a missing man formation as jet six took off skyward. Our friends, Ron and Brandy, joined us for the airshow. It was their first time seeing the Blue Angels perform. Here is  photograph of Brian and Aaron waiting for the airshow.

Blue Angel Airshow 2006

On July 15, 2006, the Navy Blue Angels performed their homecoming air show at Pensacola blueangels2006Beach. As every year, the beach was packed. The show started about 10 am, but we arrived about seven in the morning. They do the air show once a year since the Blue Angels are based at Pensacola Naval Air Station. This was our first year to see the airshow over the beach. We really enjoyed it. We have never seen a beach so packed with people. Patience was a must. Here is a photograph showing just how packed the beach was for the airshow. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.
