:-) Ex Navy brat here, so I love the "sound of freedom" from the Blues, and the '18 is just awesome to begin with - stripped down for show, it's even better. I think she's tired of my Blue Angels videos, and my less than impressed comments on the various Brit display teams!
Spent a lot of time in Lafayette, LA - the T-Birds were usually booked for a show a year. Same in Colorado, we would drive down to the Academy when they were in town. Always a fun show, and as much as I enjoy watching the "electric jet" fly, it's just not as raw as the '18's
The F4's were before my time (or at least I think they were), so the only time I've seen them fly has been "other" air forces outside the US that still had 'em in the air.
