HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!
These are some of the vintage planes that did loops and tricks. I bet it was cold up there. It was freezing on the ground. In the mountains we even got snow!
This is a P-51 and and F-16 that flew right over our heads-perfect viewing!! The P-51 is flying as fast as it can and the F-16 is flying as slow as it can without falling out of the sky. To me that is remarkable how far technology has come.
This is a MIG-17 and was used in the Polish Air force before it was retired. I love this plane. Of course you cannot cheer for it in "Dogfights" since it is the enemies plane.
We were there to see the Air Force Thunder Birds fly and do their routine but the weather became so bad that they were unable to fly. I have seen them fly many times due to the fact that we were stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, NV. But I felt bad for my son who was to young to remember seeing them fly. My daughter would hear the loud noise and start screaming--she was louder then the planes.
It was always a hoot when the planes would fly really low on the base making a huge noise and then all the car alarms would go off!! It is these small things for this mind to laugh at!
I hope we can take this day and remember those who have fought and died for our country!!
Enjoy your day!
