After fog kept them out of the sky Saturday, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flight team were able to take to the sky today to 'wow' a crowd of thousands.

The Blue Angels took off around 3:45 p.m. when the cloud ceiling was high enough to ensure a safe ride. 

At some points during the show, the planes flew within 18 inches of each other while demonstrating roles, delta maneuvers and more. A pilot told Eyewitness News earlier this week that they rely purely on sight, not sensors, during the show. 

Many more of the 2014 Duluth Air and Aviation Expo's shows were grounded because of poor weather Saturday and Sunday. The F-22 Raptors also got a chance to show their stuff Sunday.
