Great pics

That P51 has the same effect on me as a Desmosedici and Aria Giovanni. Is that wrong?

I haven't started uploading today's batch yet... Will post some in here later or tomorrow - Almost don't want to.. I think some of them are pretty cool, but I think they are gonna look pretty shitty next to yours.. Props.. You must have had pretty good seats and or a long ass lens (still the 18-200?) cuz it looks like you could reach out and touch those jets.


imho you're pics blow these out of the water

Shame they pulled C-17 out of training squadron, and not an AMC. Did they have C-5 and C-130's there?

Jay, let me know if I screwed up any of the descriptions; I think I have the tail-markings read correctly for all the aircraft, but some where hard to read. I'd hate to not give credit where credits due.

And I think that photo above is my favorite as well. Got lucky on the timing.

Awesome pics, thanks for sharing. I love the big birds, C-17, C-5, etc....and the nose paint on the A-10. I remember when the 126th was based out of O'Hare.....

No Blue Angels this year? Great shots of the Thunderbirds though.

Da Bears!

The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds alternate every year as the feature attraction.

I can't tell you how many people sitting around me jumped and gasped every time they did a move like that.

and when the thunderbirds came in from over the city and no one was expecting it and they were all scared. that was great!
