Saw the NASA B377 Super Guppy flying on Thursday while I was in Houston for a day and forgot to post about it. Haven't yet seen if the pic came out.

After the airshow today at our local Minden Tahoe Airport KMEV I saw B-25J Executive Sweet and P-51D Man O' War take off to give rides and return. The Blue Angels also put on a heck of a show as did all the performers with the weather being CAVU. I look forward to watching tomorrow's show from our rear deck which is 2-3/4 miles from the runway and about 300' higher elevation.

The Blue Angels have been beating up the neighborhood this afternoon. Looks like they're done for the day... all 6 in formation went overhead on the way to the barn a while ago. Wings Over Houston this weekend!

Saw the Airborne Demonstration Team's C-47 "Wild Kat" today when they dropped in on their way from Tulsa to Frederick because of weather at FDK.

I saw Gunfighter this morning giving a ride over my house, then FiFi rolled by. Beth Jenkins flew over in Devil Dog this afternoon and FiFi was up with 3 Mustangs and then departed to the East for what looked like a PPC, stalls and steep turns, etc. I can't wait for this weekend...

Today and the Lancaster Airport, Trey Carroll, Greg Morehead, myself and a few others helped Mark Todd launch The Cavanaugh Flight Museum AD-6 Skyraider. What an aircraft!

No doubt! One autumn just before dusk, back about 2007 I was out in the yard working, but was stopped and drawn to look north hearing a very brutish melodious rumble preceding an aircraft like a bow wave. Soon a Skyraider popped into view about 500'(seemed a lot lower) rumbling home straight down 13th Street over Bacliff, Texas 2 blocks west of the water tower. Effffingg AWWsoommee! Presumably Rick Sharpe heading back to the barn in Galveston after a show...

Wifey and I spent the weekend in Clearwater Beach. On Saturday, about noon, I saw an A-4 Skyhawk, wearing green and brown camo, departing the Tampa Bay area and heading south along the coastline. A few minutes later, a US Coast Guard C-130 passed by heading north, then turned inland toward the Tampa area (there is a USCG base there).

They have a group of them based there. Also, the prototype C-17 (T-1, the test aircraft) is retired and sitting outside the museum.

The C-17 is a great plane!

Last time I was down there I saw a VC-25 (Air Force One) flying about, and a Herc the time before then. It's nice to see the big iron out. C-17 really is a blast to watch, steep banks and climbs.
