Clear blue skies made for ideal Fleet Week weather on Saturday, & the Marina Green was as crowded as I've ever seen it for the air show. I watched stunt pilot Sean Tucker do dizzying numbers of loops & corkscrews. He can flip & even hover his custom-built plane. His whoops & hollers from the cockpit were broadcast to the crowd. The Blue Angels show seemed more streamlined than usual, with less of a gap between maneuvers. It began with 5 planes in a V-formation, instead of the usual 6.
The Marina Green was well-furnished with kids' activities, food, & souvenir vendors. Apparently the Vietnam War is highly collectible.
