Practice Air Shows Rock

What's even cooler than going to a free air show and watching the Blue Angels perform? Going to the practice airshow the day before. Why?

1. No traffic
2. You get a lot closer to the runway
3. The Angels come screaming 200 ft. over your head
4. No traffic
5. You don't have to listen to the announcer
6. You can sit in an air-conditioned car - if you have a ramp pass
7. You can see fighters at 15K ft. against a sunny blue sky, whereas today was cloudy
8. You can see the wings flex and the condensation form during those gut-wrenching turns
9. Afterburners
10. No traffic
