Indy Air Show

I went to the Indianapolis air show at Mt Comfort on Friday; I was hoping for blue skies. You see they were not so blue. It was very cloudy and gray. But, the planes were awesome.

colorful tents against a gray sky...sigh

the F-22A raptor is soooo cool. I love that you can see the fire from the afterburners.

I really don't think I would like to be upside down. I think this is a really cool shot though.

he is describing how the carrier pitches and the pilot still lands on it during a storm. he also talked about his tour in the gulf and how hot it was, even when he wasn't on the deck.
