There was so much moisture in the air from the low clouds and recent rain. It caused spectacular effects on props and wingtips
The Blue Angels lined up on the ramp.
This patriotic picture was taken from a long distance away. I had to crop alot of the photo and zoom way in while editing this shot. I am surprised it is as clear as it is.
I caught this at the very end. This was one of the smaller explosions. It wasn't an accident it was a simulated air/ground assault on the airstrip
If you zoom in you can see the helicopter. If you zoom way in you can see the army dudes hanging down below it.
My friends that took me to the airshow and showed me a great time while I was in California
I don't know which is more impressive, its size or how quickly it empties all that ammo?
Russian Juicer? A CPU fan? I know it's a snow cone machine...?
Hmmm, I thought Californians preferred the left wing.
This picture took on some strange colors while editing. It is not very accurate but it looked coll so I left it that way. It is my youngest son's favorite
If you look at the "O"(original) size photo in your browser you can see the pilots are looking at each other not their instruments
