Blue Angels Take Over SF’s Skies And Roads

Blue Angels Take Over SF’s Skies And Roads
SAN FRANCISCO—The Blue Angels dazzled the
San Francisco skies this past weekend as one million supporters came
out to Crissy Field and along Marina Green to watch a spectacular show
put on by the U.S. Navy for Fleet Week festivities.
Highlights from the Fleet Week included
the three day air show, which included the Navy Leap Frogs Parachute
Team, tours throughout the Parade of Ships, and a Coast Guard rescue
demonstration.
The first air show took place over the
Bay on Saturday, October 10, and the locals reported that the Blue
Angels could be heard all across the city as spectators watched their
precise piloting skills that often led them to be only 17 inches apart
from one another.
The Blue Angels pilots and crew
congregated at Pier 29 to sign autographs and meet their fans after the
their performance. The Blue Angels will be in Hawaii to perform at the
highly anticipated Kaneohe Bay Air Show.
Though most of the city came out to enjoy
the spectacle, some impacts the performance took on the city were not
as welcomed, particularly reports of the gridlock traffic the city faced
after the performance. Fleet Week attendee, Trinity Drummond, posted
about sitting in traffic moving less than two blocks over the span of an
hour. 
There were also reports of road and
public transit congestion due to President Obama and Kanye West being in
town for the Democratic National Committee Fundraiser concert.
Additionally, Raiders fans are pinning
the team’s unexpected 16-10 loss to be attributed to the Blue Angels’
“ill-timed flyover” over the Oakland East Bay area, according to NFL
writer John Breech. 
The noise pollution caused by the jets’
performance is believed primarily to have been a distraction to
Quarterback Derek Carr, and to have caused a ripple effect of
miscommunication between Carr and his team of receivers.
