    McGuire's is still there? I have several dollar bills tacked on the walls there.

    HOLY COW. I was a member of Tiger Point and lived out there along Santa Rosa Sound. I was permanently banned from PNS in the early 90's. Our favorite bar (other than the Sandshaker) back then was Shanahan's. BJK, thanks for the pictures. Apologize for detouring the thread fellas.

    Thanks for the 1949 footage. I'd never seen film of a routine of theirs in piston-powered aircraft before.

    My fathers said some pilots never got the hang of close formation flying in big recips. The torque makes it different from flying a jet with centerline thrust and no torque to speak of. Number 4 in the Bearcat footage was having a hard time staying in position.

    The Blue Angels just recently (Nov.'20) transitioned to the Super Hornet after 10 years with the original. They should have waited to publish this book until they could include the first year experience with the new plane.
    I'm sure they knew the Blue Angels would be flying the Super Hornet in the coming year. Why buy a 'new' book that already needs an addendum?

    Our next door neighbor's daughter went to the Naval Academy, after graduation she ended up marrying someone pretty darn cool......he is currently the head of the Blue Angels and I could not be more jealous....sorry happy! Gorgeous family and lots of their family pics have their little girl sitting on the wing of an F18.
