    Arrow Blue Angels 2006

    Some pics I took with a PAS camera durring fleet week in SF 2006. A friend of a friend is a manager at Uniteds maintenance hanger at SF airport. Every year for fleet weak, the Blue Angels use Uniteds maintenance ramp and hanger area as their staging point. This is a friends and family invite only, as you can get very close to all types of active aircraft that are performing in the air show. Found these on my old computer and thought I would share. Sorry for some of the picture quality. Also, those that don't appreciate some of the detail shots, probably should be looking at the chrome wheels section and not be in the aviation section.

    Great pics of the Black Aces, I remember when the shot down the Libyan aircraft when they flew the F-14's.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for sharing some amazing jets! Wish they could give the A-10 some dummy rounds and fire into the water as a demo! Did they do a JATO style takeoff with the Herc? Always a favorite when they were at Moffett.

    No, Fat Albert will still be part of the show. JATO (or RATO) will not be. They performed the last of the JATO takeoffs at the seasons end for 2009.

    No jato take offs for Fat Albert at SF. I do remember seeing the jato take offs when the show was held at Moffet field. Very cool and noisey!
