Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Wild Blue Yonder

It’s Day 114 of the Color Your World Challenge! Today let’s go into the Wild Blue Yonder with the US Navy’s Blue Angels! I especially like three things about this video: The way the leader chews his gum, ( I wonder if that is regulation?) the reflection of the other Angels’ planes on his helmet visor, and the way you can see what it is like to pull those G’s! Wow!

The Blue Angels is the US Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, with aviators from the Navy and Marines. The Blue Angels team was formed in 1946, making it the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team in the world, after the French Patrouille de France, formed in 1931. The Blue Angels’ six demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet. On March 1, 2013 the Navy announced that due to sequestration actions aerial demonstration of the Blue Angels would cease. However, it was determined that “community and public outreach was a crucial activity” and it was announced that the Blue Angels along with the US Air Forces, Thunderbirds, would resume air shows in 2014. The Blue Angel’s do more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the US and employ the same practices and techniques used since 1946. Over 260 million people have seen them perform!
Crayola added the color Wild Blue Yonder to their collection in 2003.

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge

    I first saw the Blue Angels at the Toronto Canadian National Exhibition in the late 1950’s. I’ll never forget how these planes would silently sneak up, then two would head straight for each other–you knew they were going to crash, it was impossible to breathe–then at the last minute they twisted sideways and passed each other. Just when you caught your breath, a incredible roar droned through your whole body. It was exhilarating! (So many decades later, the effect is similar! 🙂 )

      I know! It is so cool isn’t it? The hours they must train! I should write a post about a Seal exibition/training session, that I did not know was going to take place, when my hubby took me to a base for a weekend getaway. I was relaxing on the beach and all of a sudden all hell broke loose! Scared the begeebies out of me! I will never forget that and the fire power that was included in the training! OMG! They were practicing for the exercise and missed their target coming up to where I was laying on the beach! Well I didn’t know it was a practice! It was all real to me!

        Hmmmm: “missed their target coming up to where I was laying on the beach” ?? Sounds suspiciously like they were distracted at that very moment. Movie material? 😉
