Blue Angels Put On A Show

The United States Navy’s Blue Angels flight team put on quite a show in Great Falls, MT today. The event, dubbed “Flight Over The Falls” began around noon and ended around 4pm. Tomorrow’s schedule is the same.

The Blue Angels are part of a two-day free airshow hosted by the MT Air National Guard and Malmstrom Air Force Base. Viewing stations for the airshow are at Gore Hill – where the Great Falls International Airport is located and also the Montana Air National Guard.

Other performers included the US Air Force’s A-10 Demo Team, Stallion Flight P-51 Solo and Heritage flight, MIG Fury Fighters and the Stearmen and Christen Eagle II (red and white striped plane…very cool!).

You can see the performers from almost any vantage point in Great Falls. You would miss the static displays if you don’t head up to the airport though. They include an F-15C, T-38, C-130, B-757, C-208, ATR-72, Hughes 500, Super Cub, UH-1 and HH-60.

Of course, concessions and music are also a part of the airshow.

I took a lot of photos and, if I strung them all together, it would look like a movie. In my first photo the planes looked like dots in the sky. I figured they’d be better than that! I just kept shooting and these two photos are by far the best.

It’s a fun event – still going on tomorrow – so plan some time between noon and 4pm to take part in Montana’s Military show called Flight Over the Falls.
