Ken-

Wow! Love the Super Bug shot with the red strobes - it looks almost demonic, or like a flying ambulance! The shot of the same plane with the vapor and the afterburners is my favorite of the bunch. Cool to see them both together.

the weather had really gone down hill by the time the Blues went up, in fact, they cut it short after a few passes due to inbound storms

the right MLG was really lagging and I didn't think it would retract

Ken-

That is TOO COOL! Great shot! :woot.gif:

thanks!

Wow, Fabulous Additional photos, Ken ... :worship:

You Da Man ! :clap2:

Gregg

thanks Gregg!

its great that you caught one of the cona hornets Ken, i know you'd been trying to find them for awhile.

and of course catch that particular hh-60...actually flying, and not say parked in the rescue area :whistle:

thanks Pete! They only had the one out on display - I heard the E model CoNA was among the sea of Hornets parked away from the airshow display. And thanks on the HH-60 - I got walkarounds of that one, and the blue CoNA helo (same one at Quonset) came in Friday evening, and I got walkarounds of that over the weekend.

Yeah, it was a real shame they could not pull out two Super Hornets for display at a Super Hornet Base. I even pulled out my wallet and offered to pay for the diesel fuel used by the tow tractor to tow them the one tenth of a mile past base ops I know there were a lot of people ****** off about this, many of them base personnel. So far, IMHO, the best CoNA show was at Air Venture, Oshkosh, this year.

it would have been a great opportunity to have 1 airplane from every available squadron on display, seeing it was a CoNA event

Excellent photos, Ken! Excellent by any standards, but all the more impressive given the weather.

thanks Ken!
