Photos: Fleet Week San Francisco 2016

Blue Angels, Breitling Jet Team and more exhilarate spectators on the Marina Green.

The weekend is a way for locals to celebrate the nation's sea services, but all heads were turned toward the sky during San Francisco's Fleet Week airshow in early October 2016. The aerobatic performers included the Navy Blue Angels, the Breitling Jet Team, the Royal Canadian Air Force and more.

Here are some shots submitted by photographer John King of the aerial spectacle set against the backdrop of beautiful San Francisco Bay.
