A rare glimpse of the US Navy's aerobatic team at their winter home in El Centro, California.

The United States Navy's Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, popularly known as the Blue Angels, first performed in 1946[1] and is currently the oldest flying aerobatic team. The squadron's six demonstration pilots fly the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United States each year, where they still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in 1946. Since their inception, the "Blues" have flown a variety of different aircraft types for more than 427 million spectators worldwide.

Nice catch. There's an airplane in flight south of runway 8 too.
