The Blue Angels naval aviators demonstrated choreographed refinements of their skill at the air show. The demonstration included the graceful aerobatic maneuvers of a four-plane diamond formation, in concert with fast-paced, high-performance maneuvers of two solo pilots. The aviators illustrated the pinnacle of precision flying, performing maneuvers locked as a unit in the renowned six-jet delta formation. The Blue Angels perform nearly 68 air shows at 35 locations in the United States each year. Last year, more than 17 million spectators watched them fly. Since their inception in 1946, the Blue Angels have performed for more than 414 million fans.
