Every year, Fleet Week comes to San Francisco. It's a celebration of naval tradition that honors the men and women serving in our armed forces.

The Blue Angels have been around since 1946 and perform more than 70 shows in the U.S. every year.

The pilots will begin practicing on Thursday and they'll, of course, be the headliners in the air show this weekend.
