When Was The Last Time You Attended An Air Show? Too Long For Me
Hey, it's Jim, you know the guy who's "Just Plane Nuts." I was trying to remember when was the last time I went to an air show... It has been way too long for me, I think the last time was a year or two before all the COVID-19 mess. I know there are some coming up in the fall, but I'm getting a little antsy.
As I sit here thinking about what's to come how about a few pics and videos from the past?
Barksdale Air Force Base - Defenders of Liberty Show 2016
This is the best air show video I have shot yet, it's a good portion of the Air Force Thunderbirds' performance from the 2016 show at Barksdale flying F-16s:
I actually have pics from a show a little more recent than this one, just can't find them at the moment. That's frustrating.
