They are awesome. I had the privilege of seeing all three greats at one air show in Dayton, OH, a few years ago. The Blue Angels, The Thunderbirds, and the Snowbirds. They are all amazing.

Yes they are. One time they were here for a show, I didn't go to that one, but I was in my backyard when they were heading home. they tipped their wings as they flew over my house. I told everyone they were saying goodbye to me. lol lol

I've seen all three, Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and Snowbirds. I was most impressed with the Snowbirds. I used to go to the air races in Reno every year and in the late 70s they had Air Races in Mojave that were always fun.

I've been to a lot of the shows, all great, but I have seen the Angels the most.

Anything to do with jets, I love.

Remember the Red Baron - a P-51 with counter rotating props? That was one fun plane to watch at the races.

The Air Show is an annual event I refuse to miss. I get a thrill watching the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds.

The power and agility of those machines is breathtaking - not to mention the skill of the pilots and crew that maintain those birds.

I am just really, really glad they are on our side!

I feel the same, although I missed going to any this year.

They are amazing, such precision....

No. I do not endorse allowing our government to "buzz" our cities with war planes. It is a gross violation of the spirit of the Third amendment. The Second protects our right to bear arms and the Third prevents the military from infringing on our private domains.

I did enjoy going to some of those, when my father was in the Air Force. I've not been to one since, however.
