Voxeons ROCKet at Kennedy Space Center from blogs.voxeo.com
... The highlight of the event was the Navy’s elite flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels. If you’ve never seem them and get the chance, don’t miss it!

One fly-by from overhead approached so fast (these fighter jets can reach 700 mph) that it was right above us by the time we heard its deafening sound. It was truly breathtaking and a GREAT company outing.
