Enough with the airshow, already

Another shiny plane

The T-6 aerobatic team, up from Louisiana and Alabama. What a cool sound these planes had. One of the pilots (~42 years old) had 20,000 hours as a pilot. Thats 10 full work years in airplanes.

A fuller view of the B-25 with the T-6 Team in the background.

This was a neat Demo. Those F-86s are privately owned. Both pilots are interesting. One is a retired navy pilot, a whiz with the F-14 and a former navy pilot of the year. The other is a retired executive with the moxie to learn how to do this stuff in his 40s. One of the planes used to belong to Frank Borman, the Apollo astronaut. Posted by Picasa
