F-16
This past Sunday Julie and I were off to the Waterloo Air Show . The weather forcast was very iffy and seemed the show may be cancelled due to severe weather. The sky's were very dark most of the morning as we toured the aircraft on the tarmac but we were told it was going to clear. By the time the show started at 1pm there was sunny periods. We did come prepared with rain gear, umbrella and the specialized rain gear for Julie's camera stuff.  We had what was called flight deck seating...translation VERY up close and personal with the aircraft and NOISE. Below are  very few (1300 in total) of the snap shots Julie captured during the airshow. The American F-16 Viper, Canadain Forces CF-18  Fighter, the
CF-18
Harvard, flying in a four team formation, the P-40 Kitty Hawk and the Canadian Snow birds team.

  1. I remember seeing an air show in Eastbourne, East Sussex a few years ago...amazing engine sounds from the Spitfires and Lancaster bombers...flying so low, they seemed to shake the ground....Looks like you had a good display.... 73 de Mark MW0MJB

  2. Good morning Mark, yes the sounds were great and we were so close that you could also smell the jet fuel and feel the heat from the after burners.
