Blue Monday - Blue Angels

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

I need Blogger L❤ve too! So, please leave me a comment after you link in.

I've seen the amazing aerobatic maneuvers of the Blue Angels flying in their Diamond Formation. They fly so close to each other that it's frightening. You can check out their link here.

The mission of the Blue Angels is to enhance Navy recruiting, and credibly represent Navy and Marine Corps aviation to the United States and its Armed Forces to America and other countries as international ambassadors of good will.

Look at this amazing formation!

The Blue Angels are scheduled to appear close to me in Lakeland, Florida April 2-3.

Have you ever had the opportunity to see them?

Happy Blue Monday!

Hi there Aunt Sally, my entry for today is my favorite blue bath towel! LOL!. BTW that was really an amazing aerobatic formation out there. i will check later on that link you mention.

LV said...

I do enjoy watching them even though they scare me with some of their moves. This is what my little fellow, Layton, says he is going to be.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I am going to bed as soon as I leave this comment. I was going to wait til morning but I hate doing that.

Yes, i have seen the Blue Angels. They are awesome. It is scary the way they fly so close together. Your photos say it all. I wish I could see them again. Are you going when they come your way? Lucky you.
Happy Blue Monday. I especially enjoyed this blue today.
Hugs, Jeanne

Happy Blue Monday, Sally.

My father took me to see the Blue Angels and/or the Thunderbirds when I was a child. They also perform near here fairly often. It is a thrilling performance.

Are you going?

CailinMarie said...

wow! I love an airshow! I have only seen the Blue Angels once, I'm an AF Brat so I've been able to see the Thunderbirds a few times. The precision at which those pilots fly is incredible.

Eden said...

That is so fun to watch. Great photos.

Happy Blue Monday!

Oooh, The Blue Angels have a great show. I remember seeing them as a little girl and I saw them again about 4 years ago! It is a very exhilarating show!

Great shots!

My Blue Monday is on my book blog this week-- Baja Greenawalt's Cozy Book Nook.

They are amazing! Happy Blue Monday!

April said...

If we ever sell our house and get moved to the Gulf Coast, I want to take a trip over to Pensacola and see the Blue Angels. Have a wonderful day, Sally!

Sara Chapman said...

Gotta love those Angels. That photo of the contrails looks like a paw with claws at first glance! (Which reminds me of a joke: the difference between a sentence and a cat is that one has claws at the end of its paws and one has a pause at the end of its clause!)

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

These guys always flew over my home on Ono Island, it was alot of fun hearing them come by. Thanks so much for hosting.


Maude Lynn said...

That second shot is really a beauty!

☆Mama Ko☆ said...

What an amazing shot Mis. sally

Sweepy said...

That must be super thrilling to watch. I, however, am too drooly scared of noise. I prefer other angels and other blue.

Happy Smiling Blue, Sally!

annies home said...

the precision they have is beautiful

Jerla Oh lalala said...

wow! air show is really cool. i would love to watch it someday. My kids and husband longed to watch it too. we have it here in sandiego sometime but we always missed it because my husband works weekend and the show is always on the weekend. bummer...

Baba said...

Wow.. I love air shows and loud and fast jets..I am sharing my granddaughter's Prom pictures with her in a navy blue gown..enjoy this cool day... Baba

Janet Marie said...

I think watching them fly would be exciting and make my stomach do flips of nervousness at the same time.

Happy Blue Monday, Sally. :)

Kai Rui said...

Joyful said...

Wow! Great shots. I love air show acrobatics.

Rebecca said...

I love airshows-they're amazing!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, that last shot is totally awesome. I adore the Blue Angels. Aren't they the best?!

artis1111 said...

MEMORIES!!!! I saw them when I was little!!Kathy

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

No, but I've always wanted to see 'em. They amaze me. I do hope you get to see them.

God bless ya and have a fantastic weekend sweetie!!!

Susie Q said...

Oh my yes! I have lived with them! Okay, so some of them stayed with ME but I digress. I think you know my husband was a Naval aviator for 27 years...several of his friends were Blues...: )
We have been to more air shows than i can count but it is always a thrill to see them. When we were stationed in Pensaola we lived on base. They practiced every morning while at home. (P'cola is their home base) The neighnorhood joked that we had to open the front and back doors to allow them through each AM! It was LOUD! But I loved it!
