    Not worth it?! You have no idea what that does for recruitment. A kid sees that and instantly wants to be a part of that. Plus, it's really cool. I grew up watching the Blue Angels. I never get tired of seeing them!

    No need to go that low! For public relations they risk a good
    pilot and and expensive plane. If they keep it up they will
    someday lose both. It an't worth it.

    Probably several hundred knots per hour. Definitely slower than the speed of sound. When they break the sound barrior, the "suck" the vapor our of thin air and it looks just like this, briefly, except they are usually much higher in the air with no water in sight.
