U.S Navy Blue Angels

Posted by Michie Scott at 4:58 AM


I'm an Aviation enthusiast, one of my dreams is to fly with the Blue Angels and of course with my ultimate crush Blue Angels Pilot Lt Cdr  David Tickle.

I will give you a short background regarding US Navy Blue Angels


The Blue Angels is the United States Navy's flight demonstration squadron. The Blue Angels team was formed in 1946, making it the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931. The Blue Angels' six demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet, typically in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United States each year, where they still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in 1946. An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows each full year. The Blue Angels also visit more than 50,000 people in a standard show season (March through November) in schools and hospitals.Since 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 260 million spectators.
On 1 March 2013 the US Navy announced that due to sequestration actions aerial demonstration team performances including that of the Blue Angels would cease from 1 April 2013. In October 2013, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, stating that "community and public outreach is a crucial Departmental activity," announced that the Blue Angels (along with the US Air Force's Thunderbirds) would resume appearing at air shows starting in 2014, although the number of flyovers will continue to be severely reduced.
