No Blues for SF

The San Francisco Chronicle reports tonight that the U.S. Navy Blue Angels have chosen Hawaii over San Francisco for what is usually their annual Fleet Week performance.

Blue Angels spokesman Kevin Ernst confirmed that the San Francisco visit was not on the Angels’ 2004 schedule but wouldn’t explain why. He said the flying team would be performing at the Marine Corps Air Station in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, on Oct. 9 and 10, the dates for San Francisco’s Fleet Week event.

The Blue Angels are absolutely just the best flight demonstration team on the planet — and Fleet Week just won’t be the same without them!
