The 2015 Jacksonville Sea & Sky Spectacular Air show..

Sunday was a big day for me as for the first time in life I was going to watch a live air show.
Normally in India the air shows are held on Independence & Republic Day parades in New Delhi where you need a pass for entry.

Unlike India, in US spectacular air shows are held over more than 30 cities featuring world famous US Navy Blue Angels along with other military flight teams.
These shows are packed with breathtaking stunts and formations which will leave you agape. 

The event is mostly free which apart from air show also include live entertainment, food stalls, display of military vehicles and recruitment booths.

2015 Jacksonville Sea & Sky Spectacular air show was organized by the city of Jacksonville in partnership with cities of Jacksonville Beach, Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and Naval Station Mayport.

I got to the beach around 12:30 after spending half an hour in finding a place to park.
The houses near beach are old but beautiful.
The sky was clear, perfect for an awesome air show.

Finally the show started...

After watching a sensational over the ocean , sky performance it was time to take a lunch break.
Quickly I went to the food stalls to find some veg food as I was damn hungry.

Finally after searching for 15 minutes I was successful in finding Cheese Nachos & French Fries.
I enjoyed my food over a glance of military and firefighting vehicles & equipments.

Also I got my eyes on these beautiful souvenirs which were on sale at a shop.

I was mesmerized by these lovely models but an announcement quickly brought me back to senses.
It was time for Blue Angels to rule the sky.
Everyone had their eyes up looking for the fighter planes.

And here they came roaring...
The Pyramid Formation.

 And here comes the Diamond Formation

All planes Upside down...

The Crossing

The parallel formation  

And this one is my favorite which shows a plane, bird and ship, all of same size

I loved the show to the core..3 words to describe it completely.
Amazing...Jaw Dropping...Memorable.
