Watsonville – air show pics

Mike Shreeve has some really nice pics posted from air show at Watsonville this last weekend.  They are worth checking out.  He’s got a really nice one of Ridge Runner, a P-51 Mustang, making its show pass.  Also, a really nice one of a C-130 with some nice prop effects.

Planes of Fame airshow, Chino

Pictures are starting to come in.  More hereDan has a blog I started watching last week.  He has three separate posts from the show, and links to photo albums for each day of the show.

Many people got shots of what may very well be my favorite – two P-38s flying together.  I wish I could have been there.

You’ll want to keep an eye on Victor Archer’s site too.  I’m sure that his photos will be stunning once they are posted.

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:
