The Blue Angels TV show was an action series about four flyers who, together, comprised the U.S. Navy's precision flying team. In addition to showing their "on duty" flying abilities, the show also delved into their "off duty" adventures. They would help people in need, stop traitors from harming our freedoms and otherwise put a stop to evil-doers.

Blue Angels Trivia
Burt Reynolds appeared on three episodes of Blue Angels! If you don't remember Burt from this series, maybe you're more familiar with his movie roles or his starring role on the TV series, "B.L. Stryker (1989)". Or if your memory is really good (and you're old enought), you might remember his role as Quint Asper, the Blacksmith, on the series, "Gunsmoke (1955)"!
The U.S. Navy co-operated in the production of this TV show and the footage of the Blue Angels flying in formation and performing their stunts was film of the actual Blue Angels flying their Grumman F11F jets!
Don Gordon was a good friend of Steve McQueen. They worked together on three films, "Bullitt (1968)", "Papillon (1973)", and "Towering Inferno, The (1974)". Don's birth name was Donald Walter Guadagno.
The Navy Department would have preferred that Blue Angels be more realistic and depict the real Blue Angels as strictly Naval Officers and precision pilots. The Navy often voiced their displeasure about the more exciting parts of the show where the Blue Angels were crime busting heroes. After one such objection, the series producer, Sam Gallu stated, "How the hell does the Pentagon know what happens to a Blue when he's off duty?".
