Another interesting flyby, once again by a heavy plane: the Blue Angels, Marine Corps’ C-130 Hercules, known as “Fat Albert” flies over the Silent Drill Platoon at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, on Mar. 4.

The Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon is a 24-man rifle platoon, often referred to as “The Marching Twenty-Four”, that performs a unique silent precision exhibition drill whose purpose is to exemplify the discipline and professionalism of the U.S. Marines.
