    Joint Base MDL Airshow 2016

    We managed to get the whole show in yesterday before the rain hit. Including the Turkeybirds, which never fail to impress me. I used an ND grad on the static shots to retain some sky details.

    And finally after getting a single lame pass at New Garden 8 years ago, the B2 Spirit returned and gave us 4 passes and fortunately one of them was a bank in the right direction!!!!:)

    Loved watching these guys




    I went a little crazy with the crop here but I couldn't resist


    I'm closing with Panchito! See my page for more if interested and thanks as always for looking....William

    Nice Steve, wish I would have had the ability to catch the BUFF in flight. At least I got to talk to the crew.

    Neat finding out they're part of the 8th AF, I just happened to be wearing my 8th AF cap! Apparently that bird was "Lucky Lady IV" according to the nose art, I had to tell him that back in 1944 one of the B-24's my dad copiloted was also named Lucky Lady, that was a crazy coincidence

    The pilot said that using the differential steering he could turn that thing 360 degrees around the inside of a football field. Sounds close to impossible but what do I know
