Attention Blue Angels fans, here is the last posting of images selected from the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration team’s two days of practices and two days of performances at the Vero Beach Air Show. As promised, this posting features Fat Albert, the Blue Angels’ gear-hauling C-130 Hercules transport plane performing some hair-raising flying plus a little surprise toward the end.

Note all the people watching from the Barber Bridge as the Blue Angels fly by. I am going to miss the Blue Angels. I can’t wait to see what the Vero Beach Air Show has in store for us next!
