I have seen the Navy Blue Angels
just once in my life thus far, back in 1982 at Lakehurst NAS, New Jersey. Back then they flew the old A-4F Skyhawk
, not one of the more memorable jet fighters, but awesome all the same. Brian Terwilliger
is a film maker who has taken his passion for aviation and put it on film in his critically acclaimed "One Six Right". Earlier this year, he was offered a ride in one of the Angels' F/A-18
Hornets and he takes us along for the ride.
I'm off for vacation for a week, and I will be attending EAA Airventure Oshkosh
for the very first time. It's yet another thing I've wanted to do my whole life. I hope to have plenty of material when I get back. Meanwhile, enjoy the film.Flying Full Circle | A Dream Come True Ride with the Blue Angels
