19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Blue Angels Over Alcatraz Island

This is the last maneuver the Navy Blue Angels perform during their annual air show in San Francisco. The show was cancelled in 2020. The folks that lined the north shore of the city all applauded as the planes took this formation for their final fly over on the last day of the Fleet Week Celebration. It seemed the emotion of having the return of the festival and the normality it represented struck an emotional chord for many. (The American Experience)
