Air Show – Action!

The first two performers were air show veterans Dave Dacy and Bob Davis.

Dave flew a big Stearman biplane, making it do things a plane shouldn’t do!

Looking at these, I see that photos really don’t capture the speed, the maneuverability of these machines or the distances they went up.

The biplane shows up again later…

Next up was Bob Davis in a Sukhoi, pulling off some of the most acrobatic stunts of the afternoon – climbing, diving, tumbling, looping…

More than halfway through his demonstration, the announcer mentioned that Bob was retiring after the 2013 season. As he finished, the announcer said that this was his last performance! So kind of cool that we were there for that!

When Bob landed, he got a huge ovation

These were two very cool flyers to start the day with, but there were lots more to come.

BTW, do you see how dark the clouds are? That cloud was getting bigger…

Up next, a AT-6 trainer
