The Blue Angels are Back!
Fleet Week is upon us and the highlight of the event is the Blue Angels Air Show over the Bay. I took a few pictures from the roof of the Chancellor Hotel as they were practicing. Below is a picture of a plane between the Mark Hopkins Hotel and the Fairmont Tower as it is flying over the bay.
This is looking up Bush Street from the Chancellor's roof toward the Bay.
They start practicing on Thursday for the show and buzz the City all day long. Man, are they loud! It is really fun to see them fly in formation over the City as they practice.
