The Blue Angels are back in Maryland for Commissioning Week and performed for scores of people who lined along the streets of Annapolis to watch them Wednesday.
VIC CARTER: Well, the Blue Angels are back in Maryland for commissioning week.
DENISE KOCH: And today, the jets performed for people who lined the streets of Annapolis to watch them.
VIC CARTER: WJZ is live. Stetson Miller tells us all about it. Stetson.
STETSON MILLER: Hey there, Vic and Denise. Yeah, this was really cool. Was my first time seeing the Blue Angels, and I was definitely impressed. And we also spoke with a few families and kids who said this was just an awesome display here today.
- Wow, there we go again, guys.
- Oh my gosh.
STETSON MILLER: An exhilarating display of midair flips and turns attracted thousands to the streets of Annapolis on Wednesday.
MELANIE BETZ: It's such a fantastic show. I mean, just the suspense of feeling the vibration.
STETSON MILLER: Marylanders lined up along City Dock to see the Blue Angels perform their annual flight demonstration just before the Naval Academy graduation at the end of the week.
BRANDON HARRIS: We got to support the Naval Academy. You know, this is a great accomplishment for those who are graduating. And it's just something that makes Annapolis special to see the Blue Angels fly over.
STETSON MILLER: Many say seeing their impressive performance has become a tradition for those who live nearby.
TONY LEWIS: We look forward to seeing it every year, you know? Especially, you get used to the noise.
LEVI KNICKERBOCKER: Just the way they do all the tricks, and they do the spins and everything. They go upside down. It's just really cool.
STETSON MILLER: And for others, it was especially exciting to see the Blue Angels perform this year since they didn't perform in 2020.
MELANIE BETZ: Since we didn't get to see it last year due to the pandemic, so you know, more reason to come out this year.
STETSON MILLER: And this wasn't the last opportunity to see the Blue Angels this week. They'll be back again on Friday for the Naval Academy commencement ceremony at 10:00 AM. Denise and Vic.
DENISE KOCH: Well, Stetson, Vic really wants to go up in one. Could you before you leave go see if that's possible to arrange?
VIC CARTER: Or more importantly, would you fly with them?
STETSON MILLER: Oh, yeah, I'll totally set that up. I'm going to pass on that. I don't think my stomach can handle it. But Vic, I think you'd be perfect for it.
VIC CARTER: Oh, absolutely. I'd love to do it any time
DENISE KOCH: Counting on you, Stetson.
VIC CARTER: All right.
