The blues are here ! The Abbotsford International Airshow in the beautifull Fraser Valley of British Columbia , Canada , has arrived . And this year , it finally brought back the Awe inspiring US Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team . They gave the city of Vancouver an impromptu demonstration of their skills , while taking in the scenery , ( actually they were taking measurements , headings , and scripting cues for their show ). WOW man , are they the # 1 light demonstration team or what ?

Having recently seen Blue Angels, Thunderbirds & Snowbirds do their thing twice on consecutive days at Dayton my preference was for the Snowbirds 1st & Angels last.

My all time favourites though - the Frecce Tricolore
Patrouille de France are pretty good & of course not forgetting the Red Arrows whom I 've seen far too many times ;\)

the blues have to be #1 they are the only flight demo team that flys with no oxygen mask or g-suits and all their high G Manuvers are difficult to do especially with g-suits so this makes the blues the best in the world.

I checked with a X Canadian Airforce pilot friend of mine. The Snowbirds also fly without a G Suit.
