Bro, I had ONE day off. Drove 600, sat in 90ish weather for 5 hours and I'm 63 and in questionable health.
In other words, I didn't take a single Pic.
It was a smallish airshow, but beautifully put together. Even 'preferred' parking meant a long hike. 27.50 per, 10 for kids.
The Oregon State Airshow is well worth the effort to attend.
The surprise, at least for me, was a flight of three f-86s in formation accompanied by a composition by James Horner, of Titanic and Avatar fame, that
was written specifically for this display. It was SO beautiful that I actually had a pain in my chest!. ( I will try to get the name of that bunch and
find a You Tube on it.)
The aerobatic displays were world class with one guy, sponsored by Oracle that rewrites the laws of flight..LOL
The Raptor wasn't parked at this airport. It was kept at the ANG base at the main airport in Portland, else I'd have gotten some shots of
her....never touched the ground at Hillsboro...
You missed a good one
