I love me a good air show. I’ve traveled the country to go to some, none of the “best ones” but one out at Nellis AFB, and one in Chicago. If you’ve never been to an air show you have to go. Try to go to one that’s at a U.S. Air Base if you can, you’ll be able to walk around and on some of the planes. You can’t really appreciate the size of a B-52 until you’ve stood under one if it’s wings, and compared it to an F-15. If you can’t get to a base, then you have to at least get a chance to see The Blue Angels (U.S. Navy) or The Thunderbirds (U.S. Air Force) fly. Both put on a spectacular show, both make you impressed and wish you had better eyesight, and were just alittle shorter so that you could join their respective branches and fly.
Oh well, the above photo is a snap from the cockpit while the Blue Angels did practice over Chicago. I’ve been the the Chicago Air Show, it’s extremely fun. There’s just something cool about watching a fighter fly at 500mph near the skyline level. You’ll never forget it, that’s for sure.
