Airshow!!

Now, in case you didn't know, my family is a huuuuuuge fan of AIRSHOWS!! Every year, ever since I can remember, we have gone to an airshow. That's the #1 thing we do every year. It's kind of like drinking wassail at Christmas. And then after the airshow we go eat BBQ. Why? Because, meat+BBQ sauce= AWESOME!!

Is this heart cool or what?

This is a P-40. Or it could be a P-51, but I it isn't. Argh! I don't think the names should be so similar. My dad has all of the airplane names down. But then of course, he grew up on a military base because his dad was in the Navy. I think.

I have no worth the idea which planes these are. If you know be sure to tell me :D.

The parachuters are so cool! One of those parachuters is a 70 year old lady! That gal's gotta have some spunk. Period.



There was also a 'missing man formation' (Picture from google) which represents all of the brave Americans who have given their lives for our country in WWII, Afganistan, Korea, and Iraq.

One other thing that I appreciated SO much was that before the airshow, a prayer was said for our soldiers and our country. I think this was the first time this had ever been done (at this particular airshow) and I hope that in the coming years it is repeated. There is nothing more that this country needs than prayer.
