I know they have to do it, but damn, I was really looking forward to it this year. My company hired a boat to take us out on the bay to watch the Blue Angels. Crap. This is the San Francisco Fleet Week BTW.

Uh,....I'm not trying to be "anal" or anything, but this IS about the Navy, right? Get it ? Fleet, Anal, Navy, San Fransisco?[;D]

Are you speaking from personal experience?

Nah, just personal ignorance! My wife's brother-in-law works in one of those high-rise buildings downtown San Francisco. One year, half their family was in his office watching the Blue Angels zipping past about eye-level (they even have some cool pic's). His office is something like 45 floors up. Now, that's how I'd like to watch them jets!

I used to watch from the roof where I worked - good for following them around and keeping track of them. No more. I remember thinking that seeing A-4's (later the F-16's or was it 18's) seem to go between buildings, at least gave a hint of Beirut. The Brown Water Navy guys were cool, too, giving rides. 2 or three hour wait, but worth it!

It was F18. I think the Thunderbird's use F16's.
