San Francisco Official Condemns U.S. Navy’s “Blue Angels”
(AmericanProsperity.com) – Former United States Navy Admiral Chester Nimitz formed the Blue Angels in 1946 as a flight demonstration squadron to boost Navy morale and raise the public’s interest in military aviation. The group scheduled shows in 32 locations in the United States in 2022 and a comparable number in 2023. Unfortunately, the squad recently canceled its San Francisco show for Fleet Week 2022 due to unexpected weather conditions, prompting a rebuke by a Democratic city council member who said city officials shouldn’t allow the squadron to fly over the metropolis.
The Blue Angels should not be allowed to fly over San Francisco. That's it. That's the tweet.

Dean Preston, a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, didn’t explain why he felt the city shouldn’t allow the Blue Angels to fly in its airspace. Fox News reached out to the District 5 Supervisor, but his office didn’t respond to a request for comment. So, it remains unclear what, if anything, prompted his remarks and whether or not he has issues with the naval squad.
Due to the weather conditions, we are unable to perform today at the San Francisco Fleet Week Air Show. We want to send a special thank you to the city of San Francisco for the hospitality and we are looking forward to clearer skies next year, at San Francisco Fleet Week 2023!

Squadron members expressed remorse over the cancellation of their demonstration. A spokesman for the Blue Angels posted a tweet explaining the decision to cancel the show and thanked the city of San Francisco for its hospitality. The group of Navy pilots expressed its excitement to return to the area for 2023’s Fleet Week.
