Pilots met with fans after the show.



Fleet Week began in 1981 when then Mayor Diane Feinstein led the nation in celebrating America's sea services.

The event including the air shows, parade of ships and many community events have become part of the city's local culture and economy - generating over $10 million in revenue for the city. It's the largest and most significant event of its kind in the nation.
