Capital Air Show 2007






Wow! What a weekend it was. The air show was all it was billed to be. We are lucky enough to only be a few miles from the old base where the show was. Not only was it great to go, but my personal highlight was yesterday when I saw the Stealth Bomber fly by while swimming in my pool. The first three shots here were all taken from my back yard. The animals were a little scared by the noise, but it sure was impressive. The F-22 Raptor was just amazing to see. You get to see the underside of it on shot #4. The way this aircraft handles and its quickness is something you have to see to believe. The Thunderbirds were as good as billed. We saw the Blue Angels last year and this team is just as good. Being so close gave us a reminder of the power, awe and fear these machines have and bring to our enemies. It made us all proud to be Americans and happy that these aircraft are on our side.

God Bless America!
