It's always a treat to watch the San Francisco Fleet Week. One of the most beautiful settings for an air show, the unpredictable weather can nevertheless throw a monkey wrench in the best laid of the plans. Such was the case Saturday, when the Blue Angels had to cancel their routine 3 minutes into the show due to fog. The weather Sunday was even worse looking, but the Blues put on their low show to the surprise of many, who expected them to cancel again.
Have no fear, for I got some nice shots of them during their beautiful Friday practice. Also got a couple of shots Saturday, and some truly memorable ones Sunday!
I was priviledged to be invited aboard the Tern Sunday. Being on the Alcatraz side of the flight box allowed me to get some wonderful angles showing the City in the background (which I've never gotten before!). Quite excited about those, and I think you'd like them too!
Of course, Fleetweek is not just about the air show, and I tried to provide some balanced coverage (Ha!) of the other going ons, like the Parade of Ships, and the various activities in and around Marina Green.
Special thanks to the Airshow Network, and the USCG Tern crew for allowing me the opportunity to get these great shots!
