The Blue Angels

Since 1946, the world-famous US Navy Blue Angels flying-demonstration team has performed in airshows in the United States and around the world. This book details the origins of the team when created by the US Navy, as well as describing the different models of aircraft that the team has flown during its seventy-year history.

The book also presents graphic and photographic descriptions of some of the team's signature maneuvers that are performed during a Blue Angels airshow, in stunning imagery.
