I'd love to hit it, but I'm going out to Shreveport for the races that were rained out last weekend. Enjoy the Angels; they put on a hell of a show.

Los Angeles Times: Navy's Blue Angels Team Performs [url]http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/wire/sns-ap-blue-angels1020oct20.story?coll=sns%2Dap%2Dnation%2Dheadlines[/url] Navy's Blue Angels Team Performs By Associated Press October 20 2001, 8:19 PM PDT FORT WORTH, Texas -- The Navy's Blue Angels precision flying team Saturday gave its first performance since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, drawing an audience decked out in red, white and blue. About 75,000 people attended the International Air Show at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth. U.S. Navy Secretary Gordon England said the size of Saturday's crowd showed how much people support their country and military. "The nation now knows who the real heroes are, and they are not the rock stars and the athletes, they are the people in uniform," he said. As the six Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornets roared straight toward the crowd in a three-tiered triangle, one of the planes pulled up, leaving an empty space in the sky. The Missing Man formation was in honor of those who died Sept. 11 in Washington, New York and Pennsylvania. Although some of the pilots said they would rather be fighting in Afghanistan, they said their place now is to recruit and keep contact with the public. "Everybody has a mission to follow. Right now our mission is to keep spirits up," Navy Lt. Cello Caceres said. Copyright 2001 Associated Press

Outstanding show. It was the first air show I've been to in 15 years or so. All kinds of static displays from a B1 bomber to the largest transport plane in the world with some WWII War Birds thrown in for good mesure. They even had the Shockwave jet powered truck there. How does a truck that can go 375mph sound? LOUD!!! The Blue Angles were awesome. I had a seat right at mid field and almost ever pass was either right in front or overhead. Wow. The highlight act of the day for me though was the jet powered WACO biplane. The pilot must have a brass set!! Everything was fast and close to the ground. I thought he had plowed it in several times. My face is sunburned and my legs hurt from walking about 20 miles (or so it seems[:D])but all worth it for sure. Kelly came by the tent but didnt know who to ask for, maybe next time.
