Snowbirds Air Show




We went to a fabulous free airshow the other afternoon. The Canadian Snowbirds were using our little city's air space to practice and perform a show. I forgot how much I enjoyed this. My father was in the Air Force so we often went to these growing up. The jets are soooooo close to each other and they seemed to play chicken with each other. They even landed 3 jets at a time down the runway...all within a few feet of each other. (there are 9 snowbirds.) I had heard they lifted off that way too. AMAZING! Enjoy

The precision involved really is amazing. I went to one show in high school--one of fun things Junior ROTC allowed me to do!

What an exciting family outing. The boys look really involved and amused. We used to take John Michael and Mark Alan to the Quonset Air Show in Kingston, RI.
Always a fun day/
I'm sure it must have brought back some great memories for John Michael.
Each time I see photos of Braydon and Nolan they seem to be getting older-looking young toddlers. No more babies.
