Eric,
great shots. Only thing you are missing in that last pic is a B-2:) I wish I lived closer to an airforce base.

Eric:

I checked out your airshow galleries, very nice. I shot the Blue Angels on Sunday, my 1st airshow, and I have a new found appreciation for this stuff.

Well Done

Love your photos. I see C-17's often around Tacoma. And I saw many B-52's over the years I lived on SAC bases.

Perhaps the most awesome sight I ever saw at an airfield was of a B-52/KC-135 MITO (Minimum Interval Take Off). Usually involved about 10-12 aircraft, and the idea was to get them all off the ground quickly. Imagine three B-52's on a single runway ... one lifting off, one at about the 50% point, and one just begging to roll. Black smoke everywhere and incredible noise. By the time number 8 or 9 was taking off, the air was so messed up that the wings would really rock back and forth. Really something to see.

Again, love your shots!! Thanks.

Ken
