Where the Angels Soar -- the Blue Angels, that is

Fleet Week is back this year, and no where is it more grand or better appreciated than in San Francisco.

According to Wikipedia, Fleet Week originated in San Diego in 1935. An annual tradition in San Francisco since 1981, disappointment was high when it was canceled in 2013 due to government funding uncertainties. But it's back this year, the interest level is high this year, and the weather forecast is favorable.

Here's what is on tap, what over one-million people will get to enjoy in part or in full:

Blue Angels performance teamThis year's activities kick off with the Parade of Naval Ships entering the bay under the Golden Gate Bridge at 11:0 AM on Friday, October 10, 2014. Many of the ships will be open for first-come, first-served free tours throughout the weekend and on Monday 10/13. Here's your list of ship tours.

The air show, held this year on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, October 10, 11, 12, is a thrilling spectacle. One can watch the US Navy Leap Frogs parachute team, the Patriots jet team, a US Coast Guard rescue demonstration, United Airlines 747 demonstration, stunt planes, and others.

Wrapping up each day's air show -- the United States Navy Blue Angels with their awe-inspiring precision flying demonstration. The Blue Angels are scheduled to fly at 3:00 PM each day. See the complete air show list for more information.

Whether you are living your San Francisco dream or living in one of the nearby communities, treat yourself to some special times this weekend, October 10, 11, 12.

We were so lucky to have the Blue Angels at the Vero Beach Air Show this year in Vero Beach, Florida!  My office is very near the airfield and we had the gift of experiencing  the practice runs in the days leading up to the air show.  All that is can say is WOW!  It was a treat as we are not used to having these amazing performances.

Hi Lottie: Lucky you. I would like to see a fleet of flying angels in the sky. Imagine the distance they have to maintain away from each other while they waltz in the sky to do their act.

Hi Debb Janes  -- hop on a plane and come on down! (Bring the Kleenex )

Maria Gilda Racelis - it's quite a spectacle; I'm told some of their formations are as close as 18" apart!!! Hard to imagine.

Dagny Eason , I'm using this opportunity to host a couple of little client parties at our condo--we can watch the air show from our windows. He and a friend would be welcome to join us either Sat. or Sun afternoons - remind him we met a couple of months ago at the pet shop, and have him call/email if he'd like to stop by. Our place is little; our place is simple --and we absolutely love it!

Thanks!   I will let him know

Good morning Lottie. They must be an amazing sight, never experienced it, but am sure I will. Thank you for sharing the photo.

Hello Joe Petrowsky - the Blue Angels are incredible - the noise, the speed, the amazing formations in which they fly. While they have top billing in the air show, other performers are equally enjoyable to watch. I hope that opportunity comes your way.

Enjoy the weekend events and the exciting air show.

I took a few extra moments to 'like' the comments on this blog to provide a bit of additional support and a few points for our fellow bloggers.

We're expecting a wonderful day here in San Francisco - clear blue skies and warm temperatures will make all the Fleet Week activities especially fun, including the air show.
