I'm getting lax on my posting, so I'll try to do better on that this week. In the mean time, here are some images from the Quad City Air Show yesterday.
The United States Air Force Thunderbirds. As someone who goes to the air show literally every year, I usually start heading for the car during the final act, because its basically the same as 2 years ago. However this year, after sticking it out through the rain and mud, we stayed through the Thunderbird's performance, and I'm glad. It was quite impressive and there were even a few maneuvers that I don't remember from previous years.
A UH-60Q Blackhawk, which hadn't made an appearance at the air show lately, and an A1 Skyraider, which I don't recall ever appearing at the QCAS before.
Jim LeRoy's Bulldog stunt plane, and of course... everyone's favorite triple jet semi, Shockwave.
A few more pictures can be found on my Flickr page.
