Default Blue Angels

The Blue Angels were in town this weekend and put on a show at MCBH (Marine Corps Base Hawaii) as a part of Bayfest that was open to the public. Shot these from a friend's roof.

First 2 are excellent and sharp, they jump at 2, the third is nice, but it would have been great with you got the whole formation.

Thanks for all the comments.
sho, my 70-300 is too slow at focusing on these very fast planes. I used manual focus and was trying to zoom out and focus at the same time when they made the low pass - as a result, I am now also partially deaf (should have used some hearing protection).
