I went to an airshow this Saturday. Pretty cool, as they haven’t had this one in 3 years I believe. It was pretty cloudy for most of the day, but in the afternoon it started to clear up, which was GREAT. They don’t like to fly the planes too much in bad weather.
This was the first thing that we saw after going in. E/A-18G Growler. basically an electronic warefare version of the Super Hornet.
Then we had a trio of Vipers
Then there was a door with a bunch of squadron stickers.
There were two A-10s there. Later on a demo was scheduled for the A-10 team.
Then I went to a CF-18 to sit in it. Cool.
Uh oh, how close was I?
And here is an E-2 all folded up.
B-25 nose guns. Must have been a crazy job!
and another WW2 bird. The P-51 Mustang.
And then near the Growler was this Prowler. The Growler is replacing the Prowler, FYI.
A predator with hellfire missiles was there
A-10 started getting ready
Oh yeah, there was also a cool “mock” dogfight between an original Zero and a Hellcat
And then a cool C-17 demo happened. I’m still amazed how that fat pig can handle.
Oh now what the heck
A-10 in town
There was also a F-18 demo, but I didn’t shoot anything of it. I just wanted to watch all of it. Good vapor off of it, so it was real cool!
Then after the show ended I drove towards home and remembered that the Ronald Reagan Library had a F-14. So I went and checked it out. Black Aces!
