Aviation chatter is back on Long Island, and this time it's about the Blue Angels confirming they will fly in the 2012 Jones Beach Air Show! During Memorial Day Weekend, the skies come alive with the rumble of these magnificent F18A Super Hornets.
The photo above was actually one of the first times I got to see the Blue Angels. It was at McGuire Air Force Base in NJ on an extraordinarily hot summer day. The camera was actually the old Canon 10D which by the way, still works really well 7 years later. The lens was a fixed 400mm, tripod mounted.
