Sun n’ Fun 2019 – Teamwork

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines teamwork as “work done by several associates with each doing a part but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole.”

According to Wikipedia “Teamwork is the collaborative effort of a team to achieve a common goal or to complete a task in the most effective and efficient way. This concept is seen within the greater framework of a team, which is a group of interdependent individuals who work together towards a common goal.

As I watched the Blue Angels perform today the concept of teamwork became very clear to me. The top photo looks to me as a perfect example of teamwork as Mirriam-Webster defines it.  An obvious extension from this would be all of the groups who performed but that would not tell the entire story either. Certainly each individual performer has a “group of interdependent individuals who work together towards a common goal” that being a safe and successful performance.  Sun ‘n Fun itself is a team effort. And the list can go on and on.

I’ve attended more airshows than I can remember. I’ve seen many of the same performers perform the same show. But today, watching from the perspective of teamwork I think I appreciated the show more.

Here are a few more examples from the airshow.

Sun n' Fun 2019

I’ve had several comments about the tower images posted in earlier blogs this week. In fact, someone actually challenged my statement about the Controllers. This person, who shall remain nameless, wrote “… the Controllers in the tower are much too busy and have no time for such frivolity.”

Take a close look at the walkway on the outside of the tower cab. Looks like standing room only to me. What’s that old saying about a picture being worth 1,000 words.  I mean, just saying…

Tomorrow will be my last day at Sun ‘n Fun 2019.  The post will recap the week. Until tomorrow…

Fly Safe.
