Fleet Week took San Francisco by storm this weekend, turning heads and shaking people’s eardrums all over the city. Whether or not you’re a fan of this loud, raucous air show, you can’t deny that some absolutely incredible photos come out of it. Thanks to all of these IG users for tagging us in their shots!
The Air Show is easily Fleet Week’s most highly anticipated event, and for good reason. Each year, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels perform a choreographed show between the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, attracting fans from across the world. It’s the only air show in the U.S. to feature a commercial airliner, the United 777, doing a fully choreographed act. The Blue Angels themselves flew their new FA-18 Super Hornets.
Despite some lingering fog banks, the Blue Angels flew over the Bay on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Here’s a collection of some of the most incredible captures from Fleet Week 2023.
