Vacationing in Pensacola with the Blue Angels
The family and I headed to Pensacola, Fla., on a bit of a last minute trip on our way to pick up the newest four-legged addition to our home, Penny. What we stumbled into was the Pensacola Air Show, including a performance by the Blue Angels. I had planned to try and shoot the Blue Angels performance at their Tennessee stop, but that was of course canceled after the tragic crash of Capt. Jeff Kuss. The Pensacola Air Show was their first performance since that incident.
We pulled into Pensacola just as the Blues were taking to the sky for practice. We stopped just over the Bay Bridge and I was able to get a few shots I really liked.
Saturday we hung out on Pensacola Beach outside our condo and had a great view of the show. It started with the Coast Guard clearing the water and some classic aircraft, all leading up to the Blue’s performance.
