In an historic moment, the US Navy Blue Angels, US Air Force Thunderbirds, and Canadian Forces Snowbirds joined together in a massive formation
yesterday near Lake Erie. The three teams have crossed paths and flown jointly before, but this is believed to be the first and only time that all 21(!)
display aircraft have shared the skies together.

Fantastic! And you know ... I’d bet money every one of these pilots on that mission flight would say they had one heck of a fun time doing it.   🤣

Or at least as much fun you can have when there's a wing tip about 3 feet from your canopy...

I've seen them all individually, what a thrill it must have been to see them fly together.
