|Blue Angels taxi for take off SFO|
|Fat Albert C130 on take off|
The other week it was Fleet Week in San Francisco and whilst we didn't get to see much of it, we did decide to see a glimpse of the Blue Angels.
I say a glimpse because instead of fighting the crowds at the waterfront in San Francisco we decided to go the the airport instead.

The biggest advantage of going to the airport was that we did see things that the rest of the crowd didn't, such as; Fat Albert the C130 Support Aircraft do a simulated rocket assisted take off with a climb out at 45 degrees and then a simulated short landing with a similarly steep angle of decent so as to avoid small arms fire by staying as high as possible for as long as possible.
Well next year we may fight the traffic and go in to San Fran, have a great day.
