    The world-famous Blue Angles roared back into San Francisco Friday, giving hundreds of fans a thrill as fleet week continues in the city.

    The crowd took in a four-hour long display of might including ships over the bay and a cavalcade of planes. For veterans like Frank Archibald, who served in Vietnam, it was a day of pride.
