Thursday morning the Blue Angels flew over top Spaceship Earth in Epcot. Soaring at 500 feet and over 250 mph, they made two passes in celebration of Military Appreciation Day. Several service men and women where on hand as well to salute as they flew over. We went live as they flew by. Take a look at the emotional video here:
Many guests at Epcot, which included visiting U.S.military personnel, veterans and their families, said it was a special experience watching some of the world’s best pilots in action during their Disney vacation. “I did two tours in Vietnam and I was on the USS Somers and to see them go right over Spaceship Earth and on the second pass, when they split up – it was awesome,” Epcot guest and Navy veteran James Fredricks said. “I can’t help myself from getting emotional about it.”
We want to thank the men and women that are serving or have served in the Armed Services.
