Incredible photographs show stunt pilots taking to the skies for San Francisco Fleet Week

    Pilots with the US Navy Blue Angels soared above San Francisco on Friday
    The US Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team also were spotted jumping out of aircraft
    More San Francisco Fleet Week events are scheduled to take place

Incredible photographs taken this week show pilots with the US Navy Blue Angels soaring over San Francisco.  
Photographs captured ‘Fat Albert,’ a blue-and-yellow Blue Angels plane in the skies with dozens of buildings down below during San Francisco Fleet Week. 
Other images revealed the US Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team jumping out of the aircraft. Jumpers were also photographed with yellow-and-blue parachutes.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Parade of Ships was also held Friday.  
Earlier this week, a Team Oracle plane was photographed up in the air practicing with Blue Angels planes.
San Francisco Fleet Week says on its website: ‘Taking place every October on the Marina Green over Italian Heritage Weekend, SFFW’s air show, parade of ships and many community events have become a significant and integral part of the city’s local culture and economy.
‘As the largest and most significant event of its kind in the nation, SFFW features a unique training and education program that brings together civilian and military forces to develop and share best practices in humanitarian assistance and emergency disaster response.’
