San Francisco, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The all-Marine flight crew assigned to the squadron's C-130 Hercules transport is responsible for transporting road-crew personnel, supplies and equipment to and from each show site throughout the season. The crew also demonstrates the C-130's jet-assisted take-off (JATO), showcasing the aircraft's ability to take-off in less than 1,500 feet, climb at a 45-degree angle and reach an altitude of 1,000 feet in 14 seconds.

Official info about the Fat Albert Airlines that is part of the Blue Angels team.

Enjoyed watching the Blue Angels and Fat Albert practice for their weekend airshow during San Francisco's annual Fleet Week. The jets flew all around the city and Fat Albert made this practice flight inside the Golden Gate between Alcatraz and the Oakland Bay Bridge.

I don't have a really powerful telephoto so the quality isn't the greatest.
