The Blue Angels took the skies over Pensacola, Florida, this past weekend, and apparently impressed a large crowd enjoying their day at the beach.

A video uploaded to YouTube by MrJasonmx3 shows Angel #5 doing a low fly-by. While the aircraft did not appear to be at unsafe altitude, it was close enough to the ground to send tents and umbrellas flying in the air.

According to reports, the maneuver was performed by Lt. Cmdr. Mark Tedrow. Tedrow is a Pennsylvania native who has been with the Blue Angels since September 2011.

The performance occurred July 11.

The Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy’s 16-officer flight demonstration squadron, are next due for a Southern California performance on Sept. 26 and 27, according to their online calendar. They’ll appear at the Naval Air Base Ventura County Air Show.

The squadron is based in Pensacola and practices there throughout the year.
