(VIDEO): Wanna Know What It Feels Like To Be A Blue Angels Pilot?

Greg Hewitt

Anytime the Blue Angels make an appearance, regardless of who else is a part of the event, they’re the stars of the show.

That’s going to be the case here next weekend as they headline The Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo at the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield.

This promises to be a great event for the entire family as they celebrate the past, present and future of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

As for the Blue Angels, they continue to perform at air shows throughout the world, although their appearance schedule has been reduced over the past few years due to budget cuts.

Speaking of up close, the Blue Angels do something at airshows called the “diamond 360 maneuver,” where they fly in formation . . . with their wings just 18 INCHES away from each other.

Really…EIGHTEEN INCHES!
