U.S. Navy Blue Angels flying in formation at the Atlantic City Airshow.
The Blue Angels is the United States Navy's flight demonstration squadron, with aviators from the Navy and Marines. It is the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world.
During their aerobatic demonstration, the Blues fly six F/A-18 Hornet aircraft, split into the Diamond Formation (Blue Angels 1 through 4) and the Lead and Opposing Solos (Blue Angels 5 and 6).
Most of the show alternates between maneuvers performed by the Diamond Formation and those performed by the Solos. The Diamond, in tight formation and usually at lower speeds (400 mph), performs maneuvers such as formation loops, barrel rolls, and transitions from one formation to another.
