An elite group of Navy and Marine photographers are selected each year to travel the world with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration team. The photographers often ride with pilots and must be in top physical condition to make the team and have the skills to capture aerial maneuvers at speeds of up to 700 miles per hour.
