US NAVY BLUE ANGELS
Don’t miss the familiar roar of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels at Seafair Weekend in 2016!
These Boeing F/A-18 aircrafts will race overhead
at speeds approaching 700 mph. The Blues will perform aerobatic and
low-flying maneuvers as festival-goers look on in awe from the shores of
The team amazes spectators with mentally and
physically demanding maneuvers such as vertical rolls performed by the
Opposing Solo and the Sneak Pass performed by the Lead Solo.
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels participated in their
first air show in 1946 and since have performed for an estimated 11
million spectators during air shows each year.
Taking audiences to the edges of their seats and
limits of their imaginations, Sean D. Tucker and Oracle Challenger III
dance across the sky, delighting millions of air show fans each year.
More than half of Tucker’s Sky Dance maneuvers are unique and have never
been duplicated by other pilots.
For a thrilling 13 minutes Tucker expertly
performs one-of-a-kind and precision maneuvers with curious names such
as Centrifuge, Double Hammerhead, Alley Oop, Forward Flip, Harrier Pass
and the Triple Ribbon Cut. Sometimes flying backwards – straight down,
tail first – other times catapulting across the skies then descending in
a controlled “tumble,” the Sky Dance performance is among the best in
the world. During the Sky Dance, Tucker will pull more than nine
positive g-forces and more than seven negative g-forces.
