Plessner writes that these photos “show us that we don’t always have to travel at all for some wonderful sights – sometimes they just come to us. I was in Fargo for the grand finale of the fireworks show, and the Blue Angels were flying all over that day practicing for the AirSho the next day.”

"I was shopping and could hear them overhead and headed for a door and snapped these as they went past the water tower."
