Angel's Eye View

This spectacular shot was taken just a nano second before the Blue Angels zoomed over the Warehouse.  It illustrates perfectly how close Camden Yards is to the Inner Harbor and downtown Baltimore.

Directly under the "Blue Angels" script you can see the Baltimore Convention Center, with its skywalk connection to the Hilton Baltimore Hotel (probably getting buzzed as this was taken.)

Wedged between the two back stabilizers is the 1st Mariner Arena.

That's Pratt Street running directly north under the "U.S."  This is the main drag of the Grand Prix of Baltimore track.  It's also part of the free Charm City Circulator Orange route, which takes you all the way to Harbor East.

Conway Street, which enters Camden Yard at the MARC/light rail stop, is under the F/A-18 Hornet's nose.  You can also see the white steeple of the historic Otterbein church.

Just above the gold extension on the wing you can see the masts of two tall ships along the dock.  The brick promenade and the Visitor's Center are just below it.  That's the Sheraton Hotel (also connected to the Convention Center) angled between the wing and the nose of the plane.

So thanks to the Blue Angels for the great show and giving us this aerial perspective of our neighborhood.
