The first image is me with Pilot CDR Greg McWherter, aka ‘Flighter Leader/Commanding Officer’ aka ‘the BOSS’.
The second image is me with Pilot LCDR Paul Brantaus, Right Wing ‘Plane #2′.
And in the third image I’m having a conversation with Pilot Major Nathan Miller, Lead Solo, ‘Plane 5′.
I have to say after truly admiring and making all efforts to see the Blue Angels every time they visited town here in Seattle and San Francisco over the last 10 years, I was Truly Excited to get the chance to meet with and talk to the Pilots tonight at the Columbia Tower Club. I do have to say membership DEFINITELY has it’s privileges!! ; )
And truly, I am in awe of the confidence and humility that each of the gentlemen and woman that represent the Blue Angels Fleet posess! They are humble, engaging, consistently giving and SO Confident! I can’t speak about their Confidence enough. I left wondering what the average IQ was of the Blue Angels as a collective. Guess that’s a question for next time! They represent a strength we have as US citizens and each defends our country in great ways and for the current time in a fun and exciting way to show the Strength that we possess in all our glory!
Thanks to each of you for answering my questions, remembering my name each time we spoke and for showing us such talent over Seafair Weekend. I can honestly say the city of Seattle LOVES when you are in town. You are welcome back anytime!!
I hope you all and your families enjoyed your week here and the reception this evening in your honor!
