Air Show

April 21, 2011

Last weekend there was an air show at the base where That Daddy is stationed. Unfortunately That Daddy had to work so we didn’t go. Fortunately we live close to the base and do lots of things near/around the base so I got to see The Blue Angels do a bunch of their show from a distance. At one point they flew fairly close to our house, but my camera was inside. At that point I realized I should go and get it. They never got as close, but after putting on my zoom lens I was able to get some decent shots.

In formation. That’s one of our neighbor’s houses at the bottom.

This was part of their show. I didn’t crop it so you could see the plane/”dust speck”. That Daddy kept saying that the planes were so far away they were going to look like dust on my lens in the pictures.

    Air shows are so much fun! I went on base once when I was really little. Now I have family living close, so we watch from their yard. They’re close enough that the planes come right over us!

    I have only seen one air show, up in Seattle, but I really enjoyed it. I would love to see more! They are so fascinating!
