Boston - Portsmouth Air Show

Pam, Kate, Kevin, and I decided to check out the air show in Portsmouth.   It wasn't a very good day for pictures as it was hazy and hot with an overcast sky.  We arrived just before noon.  This gave us time to walk around and check out some of the planes on the tarmac. 

U.S. Army Golden Knights were skydiving.  They were very good. 
One of them did  a controlled cutaway which are the two pictures you see here.

USN had an F/A - 18 Super Hornet at the show.  The pilot put it through it's paces.  It is a pretty threatening plane and was fun to watch.  Did I say it was loud ...

Team Heavy Metal flew some nice formations.  They had a Russian MiG flying around with this group also.

Jason Newburg flew the green biplane and Sean Tucker flew the red biplane.  We couldn't believe the things they had those planes were doing.  They were outstanding.

Team AeroShell had 4 red and silver planes.  They had excellent formations.  They were fun to photograph.

Michael Goulian normal stunt plane.  He did some amazing stunts for us.  There was also a US Navy Legacy flight featuring an old WW11 Corsair and the new F/A - 18.
I saw some real fancy cameras with huge lenses at the show.  I didn't see a lot of those guys trying to follow the planes flying around.  Most likely tough to do because of the weight and lens length.  

You need to go to an air show at least once.  We had a great time.
