The Blue Angels are simply the best flight demonstration team in the world. After seeing them fly, everyone wants to suit up for their own personal F-18 test drive!
It was a near perfect day today out on the Bay as the Blue Angels worked their magic. This picture was taken from Pier 41 — the Blue & Gold Fleet’s departure terminal. This turned out to be an ideal spot from which to watch the day’s airshow events. To get there while avoiding parking hassles, I parked and took BART from the Daly City station and then the F Streetcar to Fisherman’s Wharf.
The French flag in the image was being flown today from Forbes Island, a curious floating island restaurant adjacent to the pier.
