There was a STOL landing contest and an EAA event for kids at a field nearby. After that was done, there was lots of activity. The "Old Crow" Vans RV was nice to look at. The Christen Eagle II was really fast.
One of the joys of a great airshow is the revisit of the legendary flying machines of old.
This years airventure was incredible, new gear made it one of the best weeks I’ve ever had
A Piper was doing circles around my home. Most likely a flying lesson. I like this angle because you can only see the underside like this when the plane is in the air.
I grew up going to see the Blue Angels. Decades have passed since I would go out to see them at the local air force base show. The thrill is still worth the time to take shots. In this case I wound up with a severe sunburn from being on the beach but it was worth it and they put on a great show.
Was lucky enough to tour this when it cam into town. Can't have enough nose pics right?
Lucky enough to live down the street of this. T-6's are a main stay. The T-34's were new to me as was the Harvard.
Not bad for 10 megapixels.
With Airventure 2019 fast approaching I wanted to post a few of my shots from last year. What do you guys think? what can I do better?

Shot of a Sukhoi SU-27 "Flanker" during a local air show in Belgium.
A week after this show, the Ukrainian jet would crash...
Here's a few more I shot during my career in the Air Force shooting photographs
I love to go sit at the airport from time to time to see if there are any good shots. There are times where a little friend helps tell a better story.
An action shot of a dark jet fighter against an lightly clouded blue sky.
The jet advances way from the base, climbing high in the sky, leaving a trail of hot exhaust fumes behind.
Not much, just a few from a nearby airshow today
As always, CC is always welcome...it’s how we all get better!
