Blue Angels 2016


It was so sad  to learn that just a week after I made these photos, Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss (#6) was killed in the crash of his F/A-18 Hornet during practice in Tennessee.  Capt. Kuss was a native of Durango, Colorado and had been on the elite demonstration team since 2014. Our hearts go out to Capt. Kuss’ family and friends.

After weeks of rain nearly every day, the weather turned gorgeous Tuesday and created a great day for watching the United States Navy’s Flight Demonstration team, known as the Blue Angels. They did their practice runs before their main show on Wednesday. Weather permitting, they visit Annapolis every year during the US Naval Academy’s Commissioning Week (graduation).

It was only fitting that I’m finally posting some Blue Angel images, especially since last year I was privileged to photograph the US Air Force Academy graduation in Colorado Springs, and got some great shots of the Thunderbirds, which is the Air Force’s demonstration team.

Lots of police, including these two MD State Troopers were on hand for traffic control and safety.
