Weekend

This weekend was filled with airplane history, blue skies, and very HOT weather. My family and I went to the Winston-Salem, NC Air Show featuring skytypers, airplane aerobatics, ski divers, F-22 Raptor fly-bys and much more. In the blazing heat (and still coughing sickness!) I managed to capture several air show moments. I love the last image...shows how small we are in this massive world.

How'd your weekend go?

OH - this weekend we didn't get a chance to clean out the mecca of STUFF in the storage unit due to rain and feeling sick. But, it will come sometime this month...crossing fingers on getting it done!

Wow! Cool pictures! Monterey had an air show a few weeks ago and we had some stunt plane above our house, scaring us to death, practicing. Stalling his planes engine and diving, yikes! I'm too scared.
We had a great weekend too! YAY!

We almost went to that! I thought it might be too loud for my littlest guys ears. Great air show pictures, thanks for posting them.
Loved those high-speed pics as well.

Great pics! Looks like it was a fun weekend, even if you were still a little bit under the weather. Hope you're all better now!

That pink smoke is wild. Looks like a fluffy pink rainbow :)

Great pictures. I really like the way the hot air balloon is framed. Very nice!

Two words for my weekend: Soapbox. Derby. (OK...I'll add a couple of more: Torrential Hurricane Hanna-induced downpours and I was working at the race, so was drennnccchhhed. Good times, though...not a bad PR gig to land!)

Gorgeous photos! I love air shows. Did you get freaked out by the sound of the planes? I always do--so intense!
