The Blue Angels take the stage over Joint Base Andrews for a fantastic high show practice. A couple things need to be noted with this video. Firstly, Fat Albert takes the stage to what should be the normal Fat Albert demo profile. However, it was cut short for unknown reasons at the time, and caused a major delay in the start of the Hornet portion of the Blue Angels show.
What was not known was the severity of the delay and the reason for it, but I learned later in the evening there was a safety issue which initiated a safety stand-down by the Boss to evaluate what happened. I later learned video on social media from on board Bert showed that there had been passengers on board (it is perfectly normal for the Blues to invite people to fly on Fat Albert during the routine on Friday) and injuries to the passengers may have resulted from this.
Secondly, note there are two #7s in the display. Both had riders on board. Both back seat riders were members of the Thunderbirds.
I've also removed audio in this video as one song played by the team causes the video to be blocked worldwide.
Please note that any music in the video was played through a public address system and ZINGER AVIATION MEDIA does not have any control over what music is being played during an airshow.
