I am not exaggerating when I claim to have shocking photos from Fleet Week in San Francisco. We felt the shockwave as a Navy F-18 Super Hornet flew over the San Francisco Bay reaching speeds of mach 1, breaking the sound barrier.
Fleet Week San Francisco 2011
It was the best weather we could have asked for. Not only were we lucky, but it was the warmest string of clear days that San Francisco has had this year. My buddy, Samit, advised us to visit during Fleet Week, explaining that it was the greatest show of the year. He was correct in his statement. Enjoy this collection of photos from our first Fleet Week ever during our visit to San Francisco.
