Blue Angel VIP's!

We went to the Tuscaloosa Air Show on Saturday. The weather was PERFECT, the traffic was TERRIBLE, and the Blue Angel VIP Passes Marcus got us were a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity. Here are a few pictures from our big adventure. And yes, I want to be a Blue Angel when I grow up...pretty sure that would be a rockin' job!

After the show we got to take a picture with the pilots on the runway in front of jet #6.

We even snagged some front row seats in the Blue Angel VIP tent. Most of the people we were sitting with were the Parents, Spouses and Kids of the team, or maintenance staff for the jets. We were blessed to get to hang out with them for the day.

This is Fat Albert. It's the C-130 plane carrying everyone and everything related to the Blue Angels other than the 7 jets and their pilots. Jacob LOVES Fat Albert!

Diamond Formation - My awesome Photography. Dustin tells me I should move to Aviation Photography...
Uh no! I'm going to be a Blue Angel, remember?

This is Marcus, Dustin, Jacob, Allen and Jake with Maj. Brendan Burks, who happens to be the pilot for Fat Albert (the plane Jacob loves so much). Marcus is friends with Brendan and he's who got us the VIP passes.

Hanging out on the Runway waiting to meet the Blue Angels team.

Heading home. Walking back from the Runway and off to find our car.
