It did sound good. Just something about an old prop driven plane.
Well hearing no negatives, here's some more shots from the day.
Here is the Red Baron planes "escorting" one of the skydivers down.
A B-52 bomber, up close and personal. The B-2 Stealth was there too, but none of my shots turned out all that great. Kind of like my Hawaii pictures of a whale.
This guy was nuts. He landed this Piper Cub on top of the truck while it was moving. They call it "The Midwest's Smallest Airport."
Shockwave - can you say THREE jet engines? (insert Tim Allen grunts here).
Another old bird - a C-47 Skytrain "Black Sparrow"
And the B-24 Liberator "Diamond Lil"
Tried to get the Nebraska Capitol in the background. For your Nebraska trivia, the Capitol is lovingly referred to here in Nebraska as "The Great (male anatomy) of the Plains".
This was very cool. An old P-51 Mustang flying with an F-16. Who would have thought a jet could fly that slow? IIRR, they called it the "Heritage Flight."
The Red Baron Stearman's.
The Navy Blue Angels. If you have ever thought about going to see them, do it. Well worth it.
Hope you enjoyed the show. Don't forget to tip your waitress!
