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.
Photographers ready to catch the action as Fat Albert prepares to roar down the runway at the Vero Beach Municipal Airport.
This is where I would have spilled my drink.
Buzzing the runway!
Yes, a palm tree to give it that Florida look.
Painted in small letters on the side is “Fat Albert Airlines”.

Power lines and other obstacles.
Bringing her in home with the Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornets lined up ready to go.
As a bonus, here are some images of the Blue Angels with some Vero Beach landmarks, in this case the Village Spires are visible.
The Patio restaurant sign is visible in the lower right hand corner looking down U.S. 1 toward Miracle Mile.
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!
