    This is looking to be another good one. :thumbup:


    If you look at the schedule Doug Gillis was slated to have a four plane formation of L-29's at the show.

    I'm hoping Eric goes...
    His pictures of the planes in flight are so much better than mine.
    His gear is also leaps and bounds above mine.

    I won't be at March. I have a shoot the following 2 weekends and I want to be able to spend some time with my family too.

    May 7-9 I will be at the Palm Springs Air Museum flying in and shooting T-34 Mentors. I will be at Chino the following weekend and I may also be shooting on Memorial day.

    That was tricky, but the Palm Springs event has generated sales and publications in the past, plus I will be home by Sunday afternoon. :)

    Ontos, did you get any shots of the Jet Provost? I completed the condition inspection on that aircraft a few days earlier. I just got off the phone and he arrived home just a few minutes ago.

    Hey FB, I did get one or two pictures of the Provost but I could not get a good all around shot, there were too many people around it for a good shot. I'll post them tomorrow.

    Eric it was great we had a fantastic time. It was hazy, so quite a few shots were messed up. I was glad I put my sun block on, it was pretty warm. The wind came up about 1430 hrs.

    They had a F22 Raptor that put on a fantastic show. It felt good to go to another airshow again.

    Here are some more shots from the show, sorry if some are repetitive. :oops:

    Nice shots. We have the March Mentor boys. I think Jim Ostrich was flying one of the T-28s

    March and San Diego Mentor guys. Larry Bierma is in the gray 34 with the invasion stripes. That's most likely John Flippen in the yellow one. I wonder who was flying the March 34. I will try to find out this weekend. I will be seeing the Mentor guys at PSP this weekend.

    Nice shots, Ontos!
