    Default Blue Angles + Van Halen = AWESOME

    I randomly found this video and thought it was too awesome to not post.

    Blue Angles + Van Halen = AWESOME:

    I actually had the Captain of the Blue Angels (of 15 years) as a student when I instructed at Skip Barber Racing School. He was the most down to earth, most professional guy you'll ever meet. I have huge respect for those guys (and would love to do it). If I didn't race, I would definitely be flying one of those.

    Blue Angles is awesome!!!
    sorry my wrong spelling.....

    I watched their show at Miramar in 2005, then I was knocked out by their unbelievable skill. Also "Dreams" is one of the favorite songs for me.

    BTW, I'd like to say "WRC + Van Halen = AWSOME" too.

    You guys both had me questioning whether they were actually called the Blue Angles instead of the Blue Angels.

    Luckily it was just both of you being dyslexic

    Awesome video and great music to go with it.

    I saw them a few years ago while on a boat in Lake Michigan in Chicago.

    They flew so low over the water the jet wash made ripples and waves in the lake. I could see the pilots heads working in the cockpit.

    Flying one of those babies makes driving a race car look slow and easy.

    I am currently a prospective Marine PLC candidate with what is looking like a guaranteed flight school spot.
    I still have 2 years of college and a 10 week OCS course, then basic and 18 months of flight school.
    Becoming a Blue Angel pilot is my goal. Once I can qualify, of course.
    I have been flying since I was 5 (dad is a airline pilot and grandfather owned a couple Cessna's) I guess I was blessed with great opportunities.
    There are 100s of videos I have saved like these and whenever I am getting sick of the papers/school and am dog tired from working 40+ hours a week i watch them and it all doesnt matter anymore.
