There is a air show going on in this town this weekend. I dont usually go to them as they are large crowd affairs and I dont particularly like large
They are however doing practice runs over my house from over at Langley Air Force Base as I type this.
Talk about a time warp.....I was just doing some yard work and looked up to see a practice formation of a F86 leading on its sides a F4 Phantom and
a F15 Eagle. It looked so unusual to those of us that know the historys of those airplanes. Unusual yet beautuful at the same time.
A few years ago when I got some VIP reservations to the show ...I saw a P 51 Mustang flying formation with a F15 Eagle...now that was beautiful
When I do go I dont stay long but do like to see he olde aircraft and or vintage stuff. It is really neat to see them and talk to the crews about
how much effort goes into the preservation.
Also had the privelege a couple of years ago to visit the Pima Air Museum in Arizona. Quite a museum. lots of olde vintage aircraft there and many
still awaiting preservation. It was the first time I'd ever seen a SR 71 other than in Photos..the piggy back high speed drone also. Same with a B58
Just thought I'd share this with some of you avaition buffs...
