At 6:30 Am it was raining...... It hasn't rained this much in ove one year. A line of thunderstorms moved through the area Fri night and drenched us. It's good and bad. Spent the morning replacing perimenter flags because of the winds. MUD....... But right before show time the weather cleared. Temps were just right.
WE had the distinct honor this year of not only hosting WW 2 and Korean war vets, we helped host the Womens Auxiliary Service Pilots (WASPs) What a great bunch of ladies waspmuseum.org/
Anyway I put the link to photobucket for the days pics. Not many aircraft pics today because I was busy at the WW2 Korean Vet tent. The cars took the WASPs on parade on the flight line. I showed one of my Squadron members stuck in the mud. and some videos of the days events. Hope ya'll like em. More tomorrow

It's always a plessure to show ya'll the pics of the Airsho. The Bf 108 Taifun is the german aircraft. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...itt_Bf_108
The fireball is part of the reinactment of historic air battles durning WW2. The pyrotectinics are done by The Blastards www.blastards.com/

Be sure to watch the videos on my next post and you'll see what I mean
