A Blue Angels sneak pass and a 747SP to boot!

I was at Miramar last year and the airshow didn't feature this. Now I am hopping mad!

Doesn't have slats or flaps extended, and the nose isn't tilted updwards. I wonder how fast it's flying.

Ryan,
Great capture of this SP a few feet off the deck. The excitement in the crowd is easy to feel as well.
