Army Golden Knights parachute team (I accidentally changed the color setting on my camera but it made for some dramatic shots)
Hubby Neil, who loves to fly RC planes, was in hog heaven with all the various planes on display. Grandson Knox thought they were pretty cool, too.
Grandson Knox got to sit in an Army helicopter
He got to "suit up"
Ready to fly
And maybe shoot at the enemy ~ right up his alley, fighting the bad guys
Army? Marines? Jet? I'm a girl. What do I know?
Red Thunder air show team
The ground crew ~ Neil, son in law Jerry, grandson Elijah, Elijah's cousin Matthew, grandson Knox, and daughter Kelly
... and straight back down ...
... and circle around ...
... then do it all over again
Flyboys ~ Matthew, Elijah, Knox
The finale was the Army Golden Knights Parachute Team
They all made it safely back to Earth with pinpoint landings
Army Golden Knights ~ from all over the country ~ they're called modern day paratroopers
and put on a great show
A shaky selfie ~ we were grateful for the (bumpy) shuttle ride back to the parking lot (which was far far away from the airfield)
Good times at the airshow!
