We saw them 3 times this summer. At the Milwaukee Air Show, the Oshkosh EAA Fly-In, and the Chicago Air Show. Very impressive! They fly as close as 18" apart in the diamond. The video below gives a great inside look at how they train. It's 4 parts. I've only watched part 1 so far.
Sadly, what I remember the Blue Angels for the most is the stunt they pulled in Bermuda when I was based there. They were there for an airshow, but Hurricane Emily came through and put an end to those plans. The Angels' planes were stashed in hangars until the storm passed.
The next day, everyone on the base, from the CO to the newest E-1, was tasked to go out and get the place cleaned up. I was working a group of folks down by the hangars, and we saw the Angels' planes getting towed out and preflighted. Then the pilots showed up with a Navy News This Week video crew. The pilots asked if they could borrow some rakes, axes, and shovels, and I said sure... we could use the help. Then the pilots stood there holding the tools while the Navy News folks interviewed them. They were saying how they were putting aside their flying to help the fine folks at NAS Bermuda clean up after Emily. Then the cameras were turned off, the pilots dumped the tools by the side of the road, went to their planes and took off!
