US Navy Blue Angels

Saturday marks the start of the US Navy Blue Angels’ 70th airshow season. The Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, ordered the establishment of the team on April 24th, 1946, and they flew their first show at Craig Field in Jacksonville, Florida, on June 15th of that year. Since that time, the Blue Angels have thrilled millions of spectators while showing them the excellence of the US Navy and Marine Corps.

In celebration of this remarkable milestone, here are some of our favorite Blue Angels photos and videos!
