This past Sunday we went to the final big airshow of 2006, Aviation Nation here at Nellis AFB- Home of the Thunderbirds.
Featured this year was the brand new addition to the USAF, the CV-22 Osprey
My pictures of it won't do it any justice for it was quite the machine! (check out the link to the Osprey above for more info and better shots of the AF's newest baby)
Pardon the amateur photos taken with my lil camera
There was a cool Korean War reenactment as planes from that era have been restored and returned to flight.
It featured: The F-86D "SABRE"
The MIG-15BIS "FAGOT" (hey, I didn't name it!)
DOUGLAS A-1E SKYRAIDER
HAWKER SEA FURY
It was amazing to watch the planes developed through the 1930's and 1940's. It only enhanced the wonder and amazement induced by our modern day fleet.
F-16 SCREAMING EAGLE
We even got a lil peek at the baddest fighter jet on the planet...
The Predator did a flyby as well, thankfully it wasn't equipped with any Hellfires.
This thing has got to terrorify Hamas seeing how most of the leadership of their terrorist wing has taken a few of the Predator's Hellfire Missles up the you know where...
Charles "Chuck" P. Aaron, pilot of the Red Bull BO-105 CBS Helicopter pulled of some of the most amazing stunts I've ever seen a helicopter pull off...
Sean Tucker took to the skies in a stunt plane pulling off incredible stalls and flips all the while miked up and giggling like a little kid to all in attendence.
Then the Thunderbirds took to the skies...
Despite a chilly and windy day, we all had a good time...
^^^hey, who brought the goof-ball??
