The weekend of the Blue Angels


One of the things I really enjoy at Berkeley is that I can take a break from my MBA experience every once in a while. Yes, there are a million assignments (Only four, but I assure you it feels like a million), but my brain can only process so much.

So, I headed out to the Marina yesterday to catch some action by the Blue Angels. For someone who's grown up watching Top Gun and Pensacola: Wings of Gold, it was exhilarating to watch the squadron's six demonstration pilots fly the Boeing F/A-18 Hornets. They did a variety of maneuvers and formations, including the Delta and the Diamond. All this in spite of a seemingly cloudy day that may have canceled the performance.

Here's a video footing from youtube

I couldn't have asked for a better break from my assignments.. which reminds me... I got to get back to them.. sigh!
