I finally had a chance to go to my first airshow in years. The navy Flight Demonstration Team the Blue Angels was headlining a day of aerial performance that include flights by Fifi, the sole flying World War II B-29 Superfortress bomber.
Unfortunately a weak stomach on the Blue Angels leader kept the team grounded but I tried to make the best of the rest of the show.
Parachute demonstrations, a biplane racing a jet car and military jet demos helped make it a worthwhile trip. Highlight performance of the day went to the Canadian CF-18 Hornet demo show. Never thought I would live to say thank God for Canada…
