About This Quiz

The Blue Angels are The United States Navy fight demonstration squad, but the team has members from the Marines as well as the Navy. If you aren't quite sure what that means, these guys travel around the country and do all sorts of shows for the public, where they do a bunch of tricks in the air while flying planes. If that sounds a little bit dangerous, well of course it is, but these pilots are incredibly well-trained and the shows allow them to show off their skill, as well as showing off some incredible technology and also some amazing aircraft. The squadron has been flying since 1946. An estimated 11 million people see them every year.
