They have an air show every year and it is awesome to watch it! Usually we just see a few fly over by our house. This time we went and watched in person. It was amazing!

This photo was taken at McChord Airforce Base. It was such an amazing air show! First time going to watch and I just loved it.
McChord Airforce Base, WA
i live in Florida and we have regular Blue Angels demonstrations.
I am afraid that I am one of those who do not approve of the use of our service men/women's lives being used in this manner. Several death's have occurred and it just does not seem their lives should be at stake just for the sake of our entertainment.
I agree that demonstrations are magnificent - but at what cost?
There seems to be a group in training at any given time and it appears their sole responsibility boils down to entertainment.
These are expert pilots/flyers and their lives should be worth more than "showing off" for a crowd. I do not place any blame on the service people - just on the people who promote it. Is even one life worth this?
Also, the cost is unbelievable! Why not use these funds for other more appropriate military use?
Please understand - these are strictly my personal opinions and since I am not an expert on these matters - I stand corrected and apologize if I have stated anything incorrectly.
