Unfortunatly this years air show, as in several of the years past, the weather did not co operate.
As stated above, these are great shows and that is why I started my day at 1;45AM wake up. Out the
door within thirty minuets. Arrived by 8:30AM Upon arrival the day looked promissing, bright and sunny with a few cotton ball clouds. I was able to take several photos in the morning.
We - the media - were to meet and get escorted across the field for the photo set up. By this time the
ceiling was getting low. The wind was blowing stronger. Hmmm, looking as though the show might get scrubbed.
Thankfully they came back to get us before the
sky opened up. The view hereis from sitting inside the car waiting to depart. Time 2:30PM.
Forcast for Sunday not good. Oh well, going to be
a long day! Arrived home at 9:45. Twenty one hour day makes a looooong day indeed.
The disappointment, however, did start upon arrival when told the Me262 and the Me109 would not fly do to mechanicals. The Me262 had brake issues. Geez guys - you don't need brakes to fly! Put it in the air and then go find a long runway to land on. Laughing, guess that is why I am not the "Air Boss".
Thinking here, wonder if they will ever move this Arizona? Weather is good.
For those that may be interested my driving route takes me across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.
The twenty three mile crossing of the Chesapeake Bay is an amazing engineering feat. If interested look it up on the web. Simply put, were else can you be "run over" by frieghter?
Be sure to return to read, and see, the WORLD WAR I Air Show. Better yet - See you there!
