Air Show







Every other year the AFB does 'Air Force Week' and brings in fun shows like the Thunderbirds. Well they do shows on Saturday and Sunday but apparently the crowds are crazy. Then Eric overheard that they were doing a rehearsal run on Friday. So we packed up the kids including Shy's best friend, picked up my brother who is now working on base, and headed up. We got front row seats. It was amazing. The Thunderbirds would fly so close and in perfect sync (I wonder if they come and talk to dancing groups!) We also got to see some stunt planes and war planes spanning different decades. Since then, our house is close enough that they fly right over the top to take another pass, so we got mini shows. Here comes one now! What a cool experience.
