Here are ten images of the Blue Angels from Friday's practice Airshow at Jones Beach. They put on an incredible performance. As you'll see in the photos below, the precision they fly with is simply astounding.
I also recorded their heart pounding entrance with the Zoom H2. (requires Quicktime player)
Only 18 inches separates the four jets in the Diamond Pass.
Landing gear is down.
There are two Blue Angels here. This is a very close pass at incredibly high speeds.
Inverted with landing gear out.
Another beautiful pass.
Precision at its best.

#1 and 4 are inverted while 2 and 3 remain upright.
