And So It Begins

Final preparations have begun for the 2006 Cleveland National Airshow.

Seen so far today:

Arrival of Blue Angel #7.

Low Passes and arrival of two A-10 Thurderbolts a/k/a "Warthogs."

Departure and vertical takeoff of Blue Angel #7.

Arrival of big hacking four-engine Coast Guard propeller plane.

Should be plenty more tomorrow and Friday, including Blue Angel practice flights! If you're attending, I'll be there on Sunday with the Little IFR Pilot and volunteering at the Angel Flight station on Monday morning.

4:30 Update:

Arrival of a United 757. Looks very much out of place on the BKL ramp.

Practice by the Exxon Flyin' Tiger. Sweet aerobatics, that's for sure!!!

Wish it was close enough for me to come see, I missed the NAF El Centro show this year. Although, since the Blues practice over my head in the winter every day I kinda get a free show most every day. Have fun!
