Earlier this year, the Blue Angels were in Washington, DC, and they were doing some aerial photography—so they would be flying overhead. The first time I heard the jet engines, which were quite distinctive, it hit me that it was them. By the time I got to the window, they were long gone.
The second time I heard the engines, I moved a lot faster and just saw the tail end of the jets. They move very fast.
My father sent me this video. It’s a stunning view of the Blue Angels, taken from inside the cockpit. Go all the way to the end and check out the names and ages of the pilots. Not one of the pilots is under the age of 31. Experience does count.
After this post, I’m going to stop doing posts every day and revert back to a 2-3 times a week.
