Who Are The Blue Angels?

The Blue Angels, a flight squad regularly putting on air shows, hold a significant place in aviation history. They were formed in 1946 as part of the United States Navy, making them the second oldest aerial aerobatic team in the world. (The first is the Patrouille de France, formed in 1931 in France.) They perform about 60 shows a year in 30 different areas. The team is made up of six Navy pilots and one Marine pilot.
