Indy Air Show Pictures

Here are my pictures from the Indy Air Show.  I’m still working on the Thunderbirds video that was taken.

Just like Dayton, we went to the air show with Mike and his son Matt.  Here is Mike’s entry.  He has many great pictures, too.  Man! I need a better camera.  The difference is obvious when you compare Mike’s shots to mine.  (If anyone can recommend a good digital camera, feel free to leave that in the comments!)

Now, a summary of the fun moments:

  • 11:45 – Eating hot dogs in the food tent while it just poured outside.  It was raining so hard, that the rain would pool in the tents wherever it sagged.  Workers were running around with brooms pushing out the sags so the water would run off and not ripped the tents.  What’s so fun about that, you ask?  People watching!  People can be very creative when they attempt to stay dry.  One guy used his folder chair as an umbrella.  It didn’t look like it worked too well though, or he already got soaked before thinking to use the chair.
  • Deb got a smoothie in a tiki mug.  Unfortunately, she got a leaky tiki.  The vendor did replace it.
  • After the rainstorm, while heading back to our seats, Matt wanted to play in the “rivers” that were created by the rainstorm.
  • Matt’s creative naming of the airplane stunts.  I wish I could remember some of the names he gave us – they were quite creative.

I also found this picture from someone else (Bill Gentry) who attended the Indy Air Show.  This is a great shot during the F/A 18 Hornet demo, where you get the clouding affect just before the sound barrier is broken.  This was an awesome shot.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
