Re: Blue Angels

It was one of the technical sessions. Colin Aro of Cool Rain Aviation in Reno, NV discussed formation flying, learning and doing formation flying. One of the Sig members Christian Goetske is a member of the Grumman group.

He discussed how they perform the maneuvers and the intensive training needed for it. Impressive! They have levels of trainees and must pass proficiency tests before they can move up.

He described the sight pictures, the signals used and how the various maneuvers were performed. I'll have a much better appreciation now when I go to airshows.
