San Francisco Fleet Week Air Show, October 9-11, 2015 Gallery

San Francisco‚Äôs Fleet Week has grown to become the largest and most significant event of its kind in the nation. Fleet Week celebrates the rich naval tradition in the Bay Area. It includes a parade of ships which enter the Bay by sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge and concludes with the Air Show. The formal flying was opened by the US Navy Parachute Demonstration Team jumping from a Missouri Air Guard C-130 (they had jumped from Fat Albert on Friday). United Airlines has been a long-time sponsor and regularly flies one of their passenger jets in the show: this year they flew a 737 with the “march of dimes” livery on Saturday and a 757 on Sunday.The main draw is of course the USN Blue Angels and they never disappoint.
