My first and only airshow of 2013 (and only aviation photography besides the JFK trip) came the week after I returned from my internship. I headed out to my home airport for an afternoon hanging out at my flight school's air ride terminal (errrr... tent) to enjoy the festivities.

Gotta love the kill marks on the nose of this L-39.

Great shots. I lived in West Bloomfield for 5 years--never knew there was a show so close by!

I couldn't believe my eyes seeing it land and taxi over, it's not often I see a jet I hadn't really known about before...

Pontiac has mostly been an open house type event until the past two years where it expanded to have a few airshow acts. Most of the action is still regular traffic combined with the constant arrivals and departures of the flight school planes and helos taking people up for rides. Selfridge and TOM are really the only full shows around southeast Michigan at this point and I can't see that expanding any time soon.
