Blue Angels and Thunderbirds joint flyover of Washington
On May 2, the United States Air Force demonstration squadron (the Thunderbirds) and the United States Navy demonstration squadron (the Blue Angels) conducted a 20-minute joint flyover of Washington, D.C., as a salute to frontline COVID–19 responders. This was a very exciting event for me. We rarely get flyovers in Washington and it is very rare for the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds to fly together.
I had hoped that I might be able to get a photo of the planes flying in front of the Washington skyline, but it didn't work out from my vantage point. They were flying just a bit too high. However, they were close enough for me to get shots of the planes, which, for me, is exciting enough.

Would make great publicity photos for both units.
