    I went to Geneseo 2009, also. IMHO it's the best airshow around. It's in Geneseo, NY, and features mostly WWI and earlier aircraft. Only one jet ever shows up, an F-15, for a short demo. Other than that, it's mostly the sound of old piston engines. Best of all, there's not a lick of concrete in site. Old airplanes and a grass strip. Who could ask for more?

    I posted some pics from my point-and-shoot at Picasa Web Albums - Don - Geneseo Air S... Just ignore the pics of my kids...

    BTW, pbfoot, you didn't happen to get a shot of that high-speed, low-pass by the P-51 did you?

    Nice stuff, Neil!

    The Hellcat is from Camarillo, at the CAF museum down there. That is a LONG way in a Hellcat. I remember them talking about adding the drop tanks a week or so ago. Good to see it made it okay.

    I love that Helldiver too.
