At the end of World War II, on April 24, 1946, the Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, ordered the establishment of a flight demonstration team to showcase naval aviation.

Lieutenant Commander Roy €œButch€ Voris, the first flight leader, led the team of Lt. Chuck Knight, Lt. Maurice Wickendoll, Lt. Al Taddeo, Lt. Jim Barnitz, Lt. j.g. Gale Stouse, Lt. j.g. Ross Robinson and Lt. j.g. Mel Cassidy. During a trip to New York City, Wickendoll chanced across a reference to the city€s famous Blue Angel nightclub in The New Yorker magazine. Less than two months later, on June 15, the newly-named Blue Angels and their Grumman F-6F Hellcats delivered the team€s first public performance at Craig Field in Jacksonville, Florida.

This is a skinpack representing these first aircraft of the Blue Angels.
