Angelic Blue

Year round jet-noise at my place of work, which is about 2 miles from Oceana AirBase, finally paid off today, with the Blue Angels rehearsing/performing in 3,4 and 6-plane squads for the Oceana AirShow whic is celebrating the Angels 60th. Our front car-park provides a pretty unobstructed view of this flat locale, and watching the Angels cruise upwards and fall back to earth, and then pass overhead only a hundred feet or so as they regroup is still pretty thrilling for that awestruck boy inside the man.

This boy used to go to a few Airshows with my beloved dad back in Australia, but I have not been to a single show here, in the heart of east-coast military aviation, since I arrived 7 years ago. Maybe its just not the same without your dad, or when you aren't one.
