The Blue Angels certainly lived out their motto “Ambassadors of Goodwill” during 2020. Their “American Strong” salute honored healthcare workers, first responders, essential personnel, etc. They flew over hard hit states like Arkansas, California, Florida, New York, Tennessee and more.
The team is station at Fort Sherman Field, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida during air show season. Their mission is bring aviation to men, women and children across America. For 74 years they have mesmerized over more than 450 million spectators.
I too have been mesmerized by the Blue Angels. Although I've been to many air shows, I was spellbound by the sight and sounds of the Blue Angels performing on their home turf.
My experience of watching the Blue Angles influenced my lighthouse painting. The drips of paint and splashes of color allude to their magical yet patriotic and majestic performance.
