The Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy's elite precision flying team, arrived at SFO Monday for Fleet Week.

The team will practice on Thursday and Friday, ahead of performances Saturday and Sunday.

The pilots are either Navy or Marine Corps tactical jet pilots, many of whom have gone through the Navy's Top Gun program.

The mission of the Blue Angels is to enhance Navy recruiting, represent Navy and Marine Corps aviation and serve as international ambassadors of goodwill.
