There was an Air Show here in town this weekend. Being that our airport has the main runway extending into the lake. I with other take boats out and control a safety box. The Box is required by the FAA and while the planes fly no one is allowed inside that box. We take our Dive boat out and post where we can stop any boaters that might cut the box during the air show. During Saturdays show I was parked on a side bay and managed to shoot some pretty good photo's. Sunday I got to move to a much better location just off the end of main runway..I haven't really done much with the camera lately. But I managed Sunday to get some pretty up close shot of the jets. I was as close as anyone was legally allowed to be. I shot photo's of other planes in the air show but people seem to like the head liner Blue Angel's the most.
We were stationed on the end of the runway were the planes started from and landed. So the first 6 pictures are the planes actually landing 1-6.

This was my view end of the runway from edge of safety zone.

The Jets coming into land 1-6

The below photo's are not in any special order just shots I managed to get kinda in focus that I liked. Some times the jets were so close I had to much plane in the view finder. I took all the photo's with Cannon EOS 50D using manual focus. Tried to use auto focus just couldn't get it to focus like wanted planes moved so fast. Some times I was shooting so straight up almost fell out of the boat trying to keep planes in view finder.. So Anyway Hope some of you enjoy seeing the boys.. I always like seeing the jets fly

We held our airshow last weekend. It was a pleasure meeting all the team and watching them perform.

I have seen the Thunderbirds in a show several years ago at Pope AFB but have never had the pleasure of seeing the Blue Angels in person.

Thanks for sharing with us they put on a fantastic show ! I've got to see the Thunderbirds preform in Great Falls a couple year's ago it's very impressive what those men and women can do !

Do you have to be in the navy and the air force to fly a navy plane?

Nope, just have to ask nicely.

If you are ever vacationing within 100mi of Pensacola Florida you owe it to your family to check and see if the Blue Angels are practicing and attend the show.

It is very impressive and free

Great pics! Do you use the spray and pray method on moving targets? Just ask because that’s what my buddy called it shooting pics of ducks taking off, flying, and landing. Well that and retrievers. Even got lucky and made a few magazine covers.
