Planes of Fame
No preview day this year, but the threat of rain meant the crowds didn't seem too bad over the weekend. Decided to focus more on the flying and actually trying to see some of the airplanes in greater detail this time year.
Lockheed C-130J Hercules finally got a close up, although I missed the C-17 Globemaster III the USAF usually brings out. The bomber flight was kind of cool, and for some reason the USAF F-35 Lightning II Heritage Flight was missing the P-38J Lightning that was supposed to join them. Not that anyone cared-- seeing a F-35A in formation with a pair of P-51 Mustangs was amazing.
The F-35A did a few solo passes as well, and while it didn't demonstrate anywhere near the agility that the F-22A Raptor demo team did previously, the final pass on afterburner was well worth the price of admission!
