Friendship Day, part 2

The day would not have been completed with an air show! I have never been to an air show and have never lived on an air station so I am fascinated by the airplanes. I also recently read Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken which has left me wanting to see planes up close. The static displays around the flightline had very long lines to get inside. I guess I'm not the only one interested in the airplanes.

Then there were the skydivers.

Trick planes.

And my favorite, the Herrier demonstration. Unfortunately, Dustin and I were over by the food so my video didn't come out too well. It can hover, strafe, and then turn its engines for flight. The Herrier is some amazing technology!

  1. "Unbroken" was an inspiring book to read, although it was also torturous to read. You can see the real Louis Zamperini if you watch a biography of Jesse Owens on PBS. It describes what the USA atheletes went through at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.
