Who will be hitting the air show? I'll be there Saturday and maybe Sunday. I love the air shows! If any other RR members will be there let's set a meeting point and at least shake hands and have a face to put with the online persona.

I can tell you that 2 years ago at the Wings Over Houston show they wouldnt let me in with my scanner. A year before that I went to the San Antonio show, and they had no problems with my scanner. Hopefully I can bring it in this time also.

I'm going to arrive right at 9:00 when the gates open. I always head straight for the old warbirds. I'll be there taking pics with the family. What say 9:30 at the B-25. I'll have on a dark blue DOJ hat and will take in my Yaesu VX7 to listen to things on.

Didn't catch what TBirds 1-4 were on today.

Awesome pic!!! That F18 put on a heck of a show. I got video of his high speed pass with the big vapor cone built up around it. I'll be going back out shortly to hang around a bit.

he put on a fantastic show...i was in awe during his HS pass and could not even bring myself to get the camera up. i would love to see some of the pics you got. i took about 260 that day. got that many cause i had it set to take about 4/sec. now i need to go through them and see which ones are best.

My digital camera is not the best. It's a regular canon with the little zoom on the front. I'll get some on photobucket and either hyperlink or post a regular link. Would like to see some more of yours as well. That high speed pass was really close to going supersonic. At the end of the runway the cone was solid and pushing towards the rear of the plane.
