Today I, like most of Seattle, made the trip to Lake Washington to watch the Blue Angels air show as part of Seafair. The I-90 bridge is closed for a few hours during the show which provides a fabulous viewing platform for the action. I've seen plenty of TV shows about the Blue Angels and their planes, but it's still quite a sight to behold in person. Watching a plane scream overhead into a purely vertical climb really is a marvel of aviation technology. Quite a different experience from a check ride in a Cessna, I imagine.
