    ... housed the most annoying prisoners of the American penal system - the ones who still caused trouble in jail. It had many uses before but is obviously best known as a prison.

    ... would have spent more time outside on Alcatraz as inside, enjoying the weather and air displays. Aircraft had included aerobatics, military transporters, a United airlines 787 doing low slow loops of the area. The was also a lot of spectator craft on the water.

Six jets performed for 50 minutes flying in formation, doing aerobatics, and ...
