Here are a few pics and videos I took from the Airshow this year.

(Disclaimer: I filmed from a different vantage point that put me 2+ miles from performance center stage thus the pics are not as high quality as I would like and the videos are shaky as heck with the camera being at max. zoom most of the time.)

AH-64 Apache:









Hawaiian Airline Airbus (Not sure what model though). Wasn't part of the airshow but was flying over head so here it is:



Not sure what model plane this is either but it was the tug that pulls the Geico ad banner all over the place and looked kind of neat:



Team Oracle's custom built biplane:







Breitling aerobatic team, flying L-39 Albatros's:











F-22 Raptor:











F-22 Raptor with P-51 Musang:



AV-8b Harrier:





Blue Angels's Fat Albert:







Blue Angels:

















Boeing's 747 freighter with Seattle Seahawk tribute paint scheme:

I saw Team Oracles custom show this past spring at the great New England airshow and I got to say I was pretty impressed.

Thanks for sharing these pics & videos

Wanted to go the show but just didn't feel like dealing the traffic. Still got to see some jets do a few a tricks though from across the water so that was cool. Thanks for sharing the pics and vids, good stuff.

Yeah I didn't want to do the crowds/traffic either. I scouted out a park on Mercer Isl. the weekend before and got to the park around 10am before the show started. Wasn't too many people there at that time but it packed in as the Blue's started. We stayed at the park til around 4pm so didn't have to deal with the rush off the island.

Hawaiian flies the A330-200 now. They have A350s on order to eventually replace their 767s.

Your quite welcome.

Breitling did an awesome show. I loved it when the one jet did orbits around 4 others.

#4 is a two seater? d model? you know for when you want to take journalists along or the press.

I think #8 is piloted by a chick.

The C-130 has a female pilot.

Number 4 was #7 in disguise. They had to leave it behind so 7 took its place.

Nice pics.

Shows just how huge a Raptor is, which is funny for a plane so remarkably stealthy.

Thanks.

You guys need to send us some migs, Eurofighters, and cool British stuff.

We would, but you didn't send anything over when we went to Nellis, so you don't get anything in return.
