The Blue Angels Don’t Come Cheap

While I commend the honoring by the military to the medical teams and staff on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic here in New York City, I feel conflicted. It costs between $60-$80,000 per hour to keep a group  of six in flight. Money that I feel could have been better spent supplying much needed PPE to the doctors and health workers here.

This was as close as they got over my neighborhood.

  1. My area is the official home of the Blue Angels and on a clear day, we can see them practicing. For free. I had no idea how pricey they were. That’s crazy….

    1. Free? I saw what it costs the military, then us. I have no problem with them, just the cost that at this time could be put to better use. It is hell up here and people are starting not to care. No masks, no gloves, nothing!
