For a couple of months, it was announced that the Blue Angels were coming. Being excited was an understatement, we almost didn’t go because the airshow was open to the public and fighting the crowds didn’t seem appealing. We obviously decided to go and thank goodness for that!
This was my first airshow and first time seeing the Blue Angels, we didn’t get the chance to see them during Commissioning Week back in 2011 at Annapolis, Maryland. So the moment finally came for me to witness their amazing skills! I was completely blown away and kept telling the mister that I would be so on edge if he was a pilot. Ladies, I don’t know how you do it, but I’d be a nervous wreck ball during every flight!
The airshow was held at Hickam AFB and we expected some major traffic and waiting time. Fortunately for us, it didn’t take us long at all, we were pretty surprised! Have you seen the amount of people that live on this tiny island?! It’s ridiculous! I wanted to commend Hickam for organizing their parking system very well; I even applauded it in the car. And then felt bad because I’m sure a lot of the men and women directing cars/a part of security were bored out of their minds. Although, I did see plenty of people take the opportunity to snap a selfie with them. Anyways, as for leaving, that was a different story, but we got lucky again because a quicker way to leave base opened, and we zoomed right out of there. It gave us plenty of time to drive somewhere to pick up our dinner!
It was such a great weekend and I’ve been loving the quality time that I’ve had with the mister! Plus, I’m doing a much better job of taking pictures and capturing some ‘couple selfies’, which we don’t do that often.
Whenever we move again, I’ll be looking forward to the day, when we see the Blue Angels again! Hope you enjoy my pictures!
