BZ's SF Fleetweek 2008 Photo Gallery


Thanks to some unbelievable access, I came away with some special and really memorable shots of the 2008 San Francisco Fleet Week air show. I was there for the survey and practice flights Thursday and Friday, and also for the Saturday and Sunday shows. The good thing about that is I had lots of opportunities to get shots from various angles. The down side for me is more work as I had to sort through over 14 thousand pictures! Yes, I know it's a ridiculous amount - but with the camera's excellent burst mode, huge memory cards, and plenty of spare batteries - it was easy to accumulate shots!

Having waded through all those shots to sort the wheat from the chaff, I'm still left with an embarassingly large number of shots. From those, I selected what I believe to be best or most interesting shots and posted them here.

Knowing I have many more pictures than normal, I decided to break it up by subject matter to better present it. It's more work, but hey - you're worth it! :-)
