It’s a bird…it’s a plane…

Single Blue Angel


What would you say if we told you we found a rare bird in our travels? Okay, it wasn’t actually a bird but it certainly was a rare siting for us. There was an airshow in Brunswick, GA which just happened to be near where we play pickleball. So we not only played pickleball, avoided the viewing crowds (about 38,000 people), and saw an amazing Blue Angels airshow. There were about 12-16 people playing pickleball but every time the planes flew overhead, the games came to a complete stop for everyone to watch the show. At times we had to cover our ears because of the loud noise. This airshow has been the highlight of our trip. We don’t think we can top this. I was even happy with the pictures I took.

    Great photos and nice to see Blue Angels. You might have seen one of their first comebacks in a couple of years

      I know they have flown in Brunswick, ME but the crowds are a lot bigger.

    You captured it!

    The Blue Angels will be in Brunswick, Maine this summer.

  3. I am green with envy about your seeing the Blue Angels! I’ve always wanted to go see them when they come to Maine, but have shied away because of the crowds. Maybe I should just do it!

      It was even better that we didn’t have to fight the crowds to see them. Although we missed some of the ground show, it was still worth it.

    You outdid yourself! Fabulous pictures of the Blue Angels. I might have to see them when they come back to Maine.
    Have you seen the news about the fire and collapse of the overpass around Atlanta? What a mess with the traffic. When are you heading back? 🙂
