That is so cool! I love seeing the old planes. I see (and hear-there's one going over right now), a lot of new ones where I live but rarely the historic kind.

Ah---loved seeing the air shows when I lived in Texas. Haven't seen one in awhile. What a perfect day for one.. Love the blue skies.

My son just recently reported that an old vintage airplane had crashed in the bay not far from his home in Texas. He was sad to report the loss of that old plane.


Hugs,
Betsy

Very nice. The blue, blue sky provides the perfect background, and you positioned the lens and cropped the photos perfectly. Thanks for the air show.

Take care.

Wicked shots!!!! That last photo almost looks like it was snapped from another plane during the show. You weren't in the show, were you??!!?? HA HA!

I think those might be enemy planes! Run for the bomb shelter! :)

Love these MsA! Great shot. ;)

The only airshow I remember was the Blue Angels, and they still come here once in while.

my hubby loves planes! I will show him tomorrow. the pictures are so clear! they almost don't even look real, almost like toys my son would have loved to play with. :)

You did beautifully on capturing them! I love seeing all the details on the planes and the propellers in stop motion!

Bossy Betty said...

Great pictures!! Thanks for sharing them. Makes me want to fly--but in a bit bigger plane, your know, with drinks and stuff.

Nice pictures! I'm glad you got some close-ups because they show the colorful designs on the planes.

Lynn Proctor said...

wow, amazing!

LL Cool Joe said...

I tried to take some shots of planes recently when I was the airport and they looked crap. Yours on the other hand are excellent.

Pat Tillett said...

I LOVE these photos! A lot of history flying up there. I hope no dog fights broke out.
