Friday was no exception.
This is how my day began:
KC-10 Extender on very short final.
This C-5A Galaxy seemed to just stop in mid air. As the jet was overhead it was so close all I could see through the viewfinder were individual tires. At 50mm!! It felt like a hurricane after she passed over.
Eagle West turning sharply overhead.
This is where I was for landing. As you can see, I'm just a few hundred feet from where the jets were touching down. Try to imagine that C-5 Galaxy where this F-15 is.
Thunderbird number one coming in to land.
The F/A-18F Super Hornet doing the high speed pass.
This was one of two F/A-22 Raptors that flew in for the static display.
A-10A Thunderbolt II, Warthog
RC-135 Rivet Joint
F-16C Fighting Falcon
