April 21st to 27th 2014, the Blue Angels are visiting Fort Worth to be a part of the Navy outreach week at the NAS/JRB here in town.

Now I'm just looking round that cynical "next budget" corner for the cuts to cancel the flying time...

Six months ago, I said it was Navy Week here at the Fort Worth Naval Air Station/Joint Reserve Base and this afternoon it all concludes with a huge air show.

The Blue Angels came, flew about a lot, and just left.

Oh yes, they flew right over Sharon's SUV as she was driving through Lake Worth town a while ago... Last time we saw the display was at a practice show in Pensacola, one weekday morning in 2012, so at least they get to fly again now.

:lol:

I surely would wreck if they flew above my car while I was driving!

AH HA... Lake Worth 'downtown' is where I am talking about... Knowing my other half, she was probably thinking more about getting an Ice Tea...

ZZZZOOOOOMMMMM

Where the Starbucks store and the new court house is, are right under the final northern approach to NAS/JRB Fort Worth. They fly over the hill behind Lowes, I-820, the lake and the runway is right there.

I remember watching the space shuttle from the hill by I-820 when they landed it here a couple of years ago. Amazing how dirty it was! In space, nobody can visit the car wash... :lol:

Close to 199 then, eh?

Wow - Cool - the shuttle!! We used to watch the lift-offs at Kennedy from the pool deck in front of our gift shop in Daytona Shores. Nothing can compare to the "patriotic goosebumps" of seeing something like that. The night shots were the most awesome, of course! Well, unfortunately, our grandkids won't be seeing those sights unless a Republican administration can reverse some of those ridiculous, harmful and downright UNpatriotic things Obama has done. :(
