A Couple Patriots for the Weekend

I wasn’t sure what to blog today. I’m still working on submissions so finding images to play with while not getting out shooting yet is making this week challenging. But I think I found something to put up for now. There are many performing teams in the aviation community each one has a unique look and act. Thunderbirds do a lot of flybys together as a team in unique formations. Blue Angels to incredibly risky formations at very close proximity. The Patriot Jet Team in my mind is best described as a ballet. They are all over the place in different directions and often come together in the middle. They do some formation work but a lot of it is flying across the field. The cool thing about these guys is that they are almost always using smoke which makes it more interesting.
