Hi Dona!

Being an Air Force brat, I grew up loving air shows and the Blue Angels always have that same goose-bump effect on me!  I hope you're going and I hope you're taking lots of photos too--if you're quick enough to catch them!

Enjoy...

Debe, How cool that your a military kid!  We plan to go and possibly about noon, so we can see everything early and get some good photo shots.  I anticipate it being tough to get some moving shots but will give it my best shot!  Have a great weekend!

I used to like those air shows when I was a kid and lived about two miles from one. Now I'm wondering just how much it costs the bankrupty federal government to put them on.

Jim:  I really like the air shows and yep it costs a lot of money for them to be put on.  They are spending the taxpapers money so we may as well enjoy the air show anyway.  Have a great week.
