    The tenth annual Fort Lauderdale Air and Sea Show - A Salute to th US Military is being held this weekend. The two day event will draw four million people to our beach, perhaps the largest single spectator event in the world.
    I lucked out and got a once in a lifetime photo from my front yard yesterday and wish to share it with you guys.

    A P-51 Mustang flying in formation with a F-15 Strike Eagle (top) and a F-16 Fighiting Falcon. Not the best pic in the world but it is a rare one. They were at about 5000'.


    These are the Blue Angels and yes...that is the roof of my home and yes...they were flat cookin' when they passed over.


    God bless our military.

    one of my favorite time of the year at work is when the airshow is in town. the airfield is right across the street from work, so i get to see a lot of different planes come and go (sorry, i have no clue what their names are). the best part is when, every year, there is a little horseplay between the pilots that always ends up in a japanese zero being chased by a larger and much newer jet.

    it's always a good time to watch!

    lauderdale, thanks for sharing your picts!!

    Awesome pics Lauderdale.

    Juat a correction, in the first picture there is a F-16 (below the P-51 Mustang) but the plane above the P-51 Mustang is a F-15 not a F-18.

    You are absolutely correct eplants. The F-18 is Navy...the F-15 is Air Force. All three in the photo are Air Force. You know your fighters. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I had F-18's on the brain as they are what the Blue Angels fly.
    Correction noted and made to my post.
    By the way, the Angels made about ten passes right over my home, and while they were no where near WFO, my CPs just kinda wilted...absofreakinlutely awesome display of power and precision flying.
    Pattern altitude at Lauderdale Int'l Airport is 1000' and they were a LOT lower that that. Gotta' get up on the roof and see if there are any tail hook skid marks. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I probably took thirty pics and only manged to lead them well enough to get one fairly decent photo.

    Oh yes I do.

    They must be a sight when they fly by with their afterburners on.

    me?
    i'm in akron, ohio. lockheed martin, what used to be goodyear aerospace (and the blimp hanger), and the previously mentioned airfield are all across the street from work.
    remember a year or 2 ago, when they had all of the goodyear blimps flying together for the first time in "xx" amount of years? they flew right over my head.
