The Blue Angels Book

The US Navy's Flight Demonstration Team, 1946 to the Present. 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 model aircraft that the team has flown during its seventy-year  history. The team's aircraft history goes from the propeller-driven F6F-5 Hellcat and F8F Bearcat, through the jet-powered F9F-8 Cougar, F11F-1 Tiger, F-4 Phantom and A-4 Skyhawk, to the present-day F/A-18 Hornet, mirroring the development of US aircraft during this time. 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.
