Air Show

Last weekend, we attended that Air Show at the Belle Chasse Naval Station in Southeast Louisiana. It was an annual event, but because of increased costs associated with the war, funding has been decreased so this was the last regular air show. They plan to still hold one every 2 or so years.

The top photo is of the F18, the F22 (Raptor - a very impressive craft), and I forget the other.

Below is a photo of My Three Sons in front of a plane. See Son #3 hugging Son #2? That never happens so I'm glad I caught it on camera.

Below is Son #3 sitting in an airplane. Can you see that he's wearing an Air Force hat?

The boys in a WWII Jeep.

Jeep also sponsored a rock climbing wall, which the older two boys enjoyed. Son #2 didn't make it all the way to the top - the atomic wedgie from the safety harness did him in. However, not only did Son #1 reach the top, he did it on the toughest section (smaller hand- and foot-holds) and did it wearing Crocs no less!

It was a very nice day, shionge. The weather was perfect, it wasn't too crowded, the food/beverages weren't expensive and some of the aerial stunts were incredible.
