The bodacious Blue Angels are here!

Posted by on Jul 31, 2009 in Uncategorized

What’s that noise?! WAHOOOOOO! The Blue Angels are here again! Seafair is my favorite time of year! I get to see blue and yellow fighter jets loop around the Space Needle and if I crane my head, I can see them in the flying in formation over on Lake Washington! I heard a fun fact from Captain Barney Kohl today about the Blue Angels. Did you know that the pilots fly the jets to each show site? How cool would that be? No lines at security, no need to wait for a pilot… just hop on and you’re off. Zoooom! Mach 2 to Seattle! I thought that was cool, but then I talked to Captain Oliver de Rhode (on left) and he told me that the F/A-18s can reach speeds of about 1400 MPH! That’s twice the speed of sound! I took this photo. Do you have any good pictures of the Blue Angels that you’d like to share? Thanks!...

They do all kinds of bodaciously awesome stuff for us! I overheard them talking about the bummer economy, but it sounds like some Seattle attractions, like Argosy Cruises, the Space Needle and Victoria Clipper are doing well. Seems to be pretty busy here, but with this great weather, who wouldn’t want to Ride the Ducks? They interviewed one guy from Seattle who brought his friends from San Diego – dude, the surfin’ in Diego is awesome, man. Sounds like Deborah put together a rockin’ news clip!
