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.

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.
