Super Fat Albert

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels headlined the 2022 Vero Beach Air Show held April 29th to May 1st. The Blue Angels use a C-130J Super Hercules as their support aircraft to carry gear and crew from air show to air show. The large plane is nicknamed Fat Albert and puts on a short demonstration of its own. These photos are from its flight on Saturday, 30 April when it circled the Vero Beach Municipal Airport a few times prior to the Blue Angels performance.
