2008 Quad City Air Show

Here are a few images from yesterday's air show. For a more complete set of images, check out my post on's forum. It was a great day for the air show, and a great day for taking pictures. I would say that despite fuel prices, this year's show had some of the best displays I've seen in several years.

The United States Navy Blue Angels.

A wing walker, and the heritage flight involving a WWII P-51 Mustang and a modern F-16 Fighting Falcon.

I was impressed by this one. The helicopter in the back is a CH-53 Sea Stallion. This aircraft is frequently rumored to be attending the air show, but it almost never does. This year may be the first time I've seen it. The helicopter on the left is the familiar CH-47 Chinook, like the Iowa Air National Guard in Mt. Joy fly.

I also thought it was better this year than it has been for a while. I was worried that it would be smaller because of fuel prices.
