Navy Flyover Send Beach Umbrellas Scurrying Every Which Way
So, how close is too close?
The Navy's Blue Angels did a flyover recently in Pensacola, Fla. that blew beachgoers away. Well, their umbrellas, anyway.
One of the planes flew so low that several tents, umbrellas and other beach accessories went flying up in the air like a tornado had rolled through town.
Considering these planes reach some 700 miles per hour, you can bet it felt like some severe wind came roaring by. With a plane whizzing by so close it looks like it's giving crew cuts to the people below, it may have been smart to consider buckling up once they found spots on the sand.
Fortunately, no one seems too angry about what happened. We suppose that's bound to happen where you're too busy being in awe.
