Ketchikan, Alaska - If you thought you saw the Blue Angels' Boeing
F/A-18 Hornets last week and again Monday, you were correct.
On their way to and from Anchorage for a performance at Elmendorf
AFB on August 12th & 13th, some of the United States Navy's
Blue Angels stopped in Ketchikan for refueling and then again
According to the Blue Angels'
official website, "A total of 16 officers voluntarily serve
with the Blue Angels. Each year the team typically selects three
tactical (fighter or fighter/attack) jet pilots, two support
officers and one Marine Corps C-130 pilot to relieve departing
John Allison's Boeing F/A-18 Hornet
at Ketchikan International Airport Monday (August 14th) as the
Blue Angels' maintenance crew checks it out.

Five Blue Angels stopped in for fuel on their way to Elmendorf
AFB last Monday, August 7th. Two went on to Wrangell for fuel
since Ketchikan's weather was not all that good said the photographer.
