    air/sea show

    I took some pics of our 12th annual air/sea show from my balcony. I mean, most of these are "up close and personal"...thought you might enjoy them.

    An American Airlines Boeing 777.


    A C-130 cargo aircraft...which in a different configuration becomes the
    mighty C-130 Spectre gunship..."Puff the magic dragon".


    A CH46 Sea Knight Marine helicopter.


    A rare photo of the old WW II P-51 Mustang in formation with our newest bad
    boy, the F-22 raptor.

    Wow! I especially love the CH46 with the ocean and the sky. Beautiful pictures. How much does one of those cost?

    What floor are you on so that you see the top of the helicopter? That's quite the close-up of a commercial airliner, by the way. Though I hear they aren't all that rare in Florida.

    How much does one of what cost? If you are speaking of the camera...It is an Olympus C-750 UZ. It has a 10x zoom lens, which is equivelant to a 360 mm on a 35 mm film camera. That 777 was a part of the show and did a low pass up the beach...do you suppose Boeing was advertising its newest aircraft?

    What floor are you on so that you see the top of the helicopter?
    I live on the 18th floor, which is 210 feet above sea level.
    I took the following photos at last years show and you can see the Coast Guard helicopters were on the deck.

    Ooops! Glad you Caught that. The Thunderbirds were here this year...I got no pics of them...too busy fixin' corned beef and serving refreshments to my guests. The Blue Angels were the ones I took last year. I fixed it. Thanks.

    Awsome photos! I love the airliner. That is cool. Those things fly right over my house all the time. Some are pretty dang low as they are coming in for landing at the airport here. I love seeing them but I swear they look like they are heading right at me.

    I like big loud planes and trains...oh and helicopters. I especially love it when there is a race here and the fly-over planes go right over the house. Sounds like the sky is being ripped open. They always move too fast for a pic.
