  1. The wife and I braved the traffic and the sun to partake in a full day at the Quonset Airshow yesterday. It was so good. So. Fucking Good. Due to the traffic and the 100,000 people we missed the first few acts, but got there just in time for the Geico Skytypers in their North American SNJ-2s, also known as the T-6 Texan. During the wait for the shuttle buses we were able to see parts of the earlier acts. The Blackhawk show was sadly missed, but they made several passes over the parking areas and waved to us! My wife snapped some pictures as she saw fit and it seemed rude of me not to share some of them with you guys. The Geico Skytypers were tight and their old prop-driven beauties were fun to watch. Mark Murphy then took his restored P-51 named "Never Miss" for a spin and did a ton of low, high-speed passes. Man, that thing is gorgeous. The Canadian Snowbirds put on one hell of a show in their CT-114 Tutors. The 9 of them flew in formations so tight and so well choreographed that their performance rivaled that of the Blue Angels. John Klatt next piloted Jack Links' Jet Waco or "Screaming Sasquatch"... It's a heavily modified prop plane that also has a jet engine on it. No pictures as we used the down time to check out the flight line and grab some $10 burgers and $6 bottles of soda. The Shockwave Jet Truck made a couple of appearances as well. We made it back to some prime seats just in time for the F-16 flight demonstration my wife was getting hot and bothered about. That thing is a nice plane and the roar of its engine is spectacular. My favorite part of the show was the "USAF Heritage Flight" when the F-16 and the P-51 flew together. We went to the bathroom and took another look around during Sean D. Tucker's incredible stunt flying. That dude is crazy... He can make his biplane hover and did this awesome stunt where he flew straight up and stalled while releasing tons of smoke and then busted out of the cloud like a bat out of hell. We were pleasantly surprised by a CF-18 demonstration. Pretty typical stuff but the pilot made some nice low passes and we even got to see (and hear) him break the sound barrier. Very cool to witness in person. Finally, the show we were waiting for, was the Blue Angels. Do they really need any introduction? Their C-130 demonstration was awesome, but their F-18 mastery is the talk of the town. Not many things in life revert fully grown humans back to a state of childlike glee... This airshow was definitely one of them. If we were to change anything we would have brought our bicycles and just ridden to the base from the parking area. Everything else was really smooth. The show is free and they had multiple potable water trailers around. If we had packed some food it would have been a much cheaper experience, but even then it was well worth it. Here is some random plane porn: Enjoy!
