The Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy's official flight demonstration squadron, took to the skies over the San Francisco Bay last week as part of the annual Fleet Week celebration.
The Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornets have been a cornerstone of the event since it was re-established in 1981. It is estimated that nearly 1 million people came to San Francisco to watch this year's Fleet Week, which ran Oct. 4 through 8. (Crowds also flocked to San Francisco for the America's Cup yacht racing, which took place Oct. 2 through 7).
The following are a handful of photographers highlighting the dazzling air shows.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
