I dont think that once in the last 20 years, have i seen an entire week (yes i mean 7 whole days! and it is still going now!!) with incredible weather during Fleet Week. Usually we get a couple days, but (as in last year), the fog came in right around the time they started flying and only were able to do one trick and pass over the bay before having to call it. Some years, they dont even fly. If they cant see their plot points it is very dangerous as well as if it is too foggy, we cant see them. This week though, none of that issue as you can see below.. It was maybe the most beautiful weathered Fleet Week in the last 2 decades! It was really awesome. 🙂
Blue Angels doing their loop-de-loop over SF bay. Thank heavens they use the smoke or i’d have never been able to capture it on my iphone!
One of my favorite members of the Blue Angels team… FAT ALBERT!
From atop Bernal Hill at the top by the Microwave tower. the little speck in the sky fat albert leaving scene of the fly by!
Oh what a view!
That speck up there is not a plane, but a beautiful Red Tailed Hawk.
Neighbor and his boy were enjoying the sites at the top too. They were very nice.
Hey hey hey!
Oopsie… a little bit of trouble atop the tower. I dont know if the girl who was running on the roof of the tower got arrested or just warned. Note… should never trespass on city govt. property while hundreds of people are there watching.
whoops. another guy being talked to by the popo. i saw him later though so they let him go. yea.
pretty steep up here at 436 feet up.
while we are here, lets check out our 49ers! Candlestick is just to the left of the bluff.
I hope you enjoyed the photo recap. I know we dont have the best view to see all the exciting flying, but i personally think that 1. the views of the city make it worthwhile! And 2. not having to fight the traffic makes it all doable!
