I was out on the San Francisco Bay with thousands of others for the Blue Angels show on Saturday. What a day!
Part of the show included a low-level flyover by a giant United Airlines Boeing 747.
I thought it looked pretty cool. But I heard some grumbling among the crowd I was with about it. When I posted some shots and video (below) on my Facebook page, a minor scuffle broke out between some friends who liked it, others who said it reminded them of 9/11, and a vet who was appalled at the invasion of corporate sponsorship into a military show.
Personally, it did not bother me much. Since I’m a window-seat sorta frequent flyer, I would have loved to have been on board peering out at the Golden Gate at such close range. Wow!
What about you? I’d like to get your reaction to seeing this big bird fly over the bay.
