Strap yourself in for high-altitude history-making adventure – you’re about to experience the thrill, precision, and aerial artistry of the Navy’s Blue Angels.

You’ll soar above Russia, where MIG fighters intercept and escort the Blue Angels – the first U.S. military flight demo team ever to appear in the former enemy’s skies. You’ll discover the team’s illustrious history through archival footage and interviews with pilots and crews. It’s a ride of a lifetime!
Seen it too many times to count. What really makes this documentary is the Blues team for that year. Some of the greatest pilots with the humblest and greatest attitudes. On top of that the whole Blues program is an outstanding display of real concern for safety and a formidable example of team work. I love planes, but these guys made this real special. I was so impressed with them that I bought lunch and showed it to my leadership staff at work.
The best biographical portrait of the Blue Angels. This video captures the excitement, fun, and beauty of the Blue Angel's performance. It also presents the dedication required and given by all members of the Blue Angel's team, including the pilots and the ground crew. To this date, this is the best video history of the Blue Angels produced.
A truly great aviation documentary. This was one of the best documentaries that I've ever seen on the Blues. While other videos only concentrate on the flying scenes (don't worry, this has PLENTY of them) this video shows what the WHOLE team goes through to make the show work. Everything is covered, from the pilots, to ops and the techs who keep the planes in the air. As a aviation professional, I enjoyed seeing credit go to the the men and women who keep the Blue Jets flying!
Great for all ages. My 2 year-old and I have watched this together at least 100 times, and we love it. I'm a pilot; he loves airplanes. The flying sequences are beautiful. You come away from this with boundless admiration for the pilots, the maintenance crews, the families, the airplanes and the whole program. For anyone associated with naval aviation especially, this video would be an endless daydream of heaven.
Quite possibly the best Blue Angels documentary out there. Does a great job showing how hard all the pilots and support crew work behind the scenes to get every show in the air. This will definitely leave you with a much better appreciation of exactly what goes on during an air show.
