There were only 5 flyable jets for the Blue Angels to perform on the 7th. The first show at 8:30 featured only the Diamond pilots, so the take-off is all you’ll see in this video from the 1st show. The second show at 1pm started off with 3 diamond pilots (with Blue Angel #4 missing) and the two solos. about 50% through that, Blue Angel #2 (flying jet #5 landed for some reason) and from there.. Only 2 diamond pilots & the 2 solos flew out the rest of the practice.
Note: The 6 pilots are flying very random jet numbers in this video.
Blue Angel #1 Commanding Officer & FL – Capt. Thomas Frosch
Blue Angel #2 Right Wing – Lt. Matt Suyderhoud
Blue Angel #3 Left Wing – Lt. Andy Talbott
Blue Angel #4 Slot Pilot – Lcdr. Nate Barton
