Canadian Wildfire Smoke Cancels Blue Angels Performance In Nebraska

Blue Angels Grounded Due to Smoke
Note: This is a file photo, thankfully the smoke was not this bad!

Typically, when the Blue Angels are forced to cancel a demonstration, it’s due to rain or low clouds. However, on Saturday in Lincoln, Nebraska, the cancellation was due to smoke.

To be able to perform, the Blue Angels must have at least three nautical miles of visibility horizontally from the designated show center point. Saturday afternoon, visibility in the Lincoln area was significantly reduced due to wildfires burning in Canada and Minnesota. More than 600 square miles have been burned in Fort McMurray, Canada. Winds from the northeast, helped by a frontal system, blew the smoke into the area and an air quality alert was in effect.

Smoke Cancels Blue Angels Show

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Smoke Analysis product showed heavy smoke in the Lincoln area Saturday afternoon. Each red dot indicates a hot spot or an active fire detected by satellites.

Although it is certainly frustrating for the spectators, this is probably the least important consequence of the devastating fires and our thoughts are with those affected. Luckily the team was able to perform a full demonstration on Sunday.

US Navy Blue Angels And USAF Thunderbirds Adopt Chemtrail Smoke To Aid Recruitment

Blue Angels and Thunderbirds Chemtrails

Chemtrails aren’t just for airliners anymore! Unconfirmed reports have surfaced today that the US Navy Blue Angels and US Air Force Thunderbirds have begun using a new type of airshow smoke this year. The smoke will contain chemicals, such as Dihydrogen Monoxide, designed to induce a strong sense of awe and patriotism in anyone exposed to it. The substance is very similar to that used in traditional chemtrails that are sprayed around the world.

Documents released to the media indicate that the move is fueled by declining recruitment numbers. A primary goal of the demonstration teams is to inspire young people to enlist in the military. One passage in particular slams “kids these days” for being too distracted by cell phones and electronics to be taken in by the military’s message. “Even young people sitting outside at an airshow are constantly on their cell phones,” the document states, “and they can hardly be bothered to look up at the amazing aerobatics in front of them. New methods are needed to reach these dang kids.” Ironically, the military plans to funnel many of the new recruits into the drone pilot program where they will fly by staring at a screen.

The new smoke has already been used at several show sites in 2016, and will likely be appearing in skies near you at some point this year. It is not harmful to spectators’ health, but anyone affected will find themselves extremely impressed by the flying action during the show. They will feel euphoric and proud of the military capabilities of the US. If all goes well, some will even consider joining the military. All thanks to chemtrails.
