In Honor of the Air Force




It's time for the 51st Annual
Air & Water Show.
I have gone many times
over the years, but not this year. I'm not in the mood
to fight the crowds. The U.S.A.F. F-16 Thunderbirds are the best,
with their death defying formations. Totally loud & awesome.

Plus, this is the lst year it is streaming live
Check it out, Live Sun. 8/16, tomorrow
from 10 am until 4 pm.
It's hotter than hell out here today & tomorrow,
so I'm chilling (as much as I can without A/C)
here at home watching the show! Incredible stuff, people.

In honor of our Great U.S. Air Force and the wonderful planes & pilots
who keep us safe, here is a cool video, played to the tune of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck".


Shout out to AD/DC as well. They were in Chicago last night!
Rock on dudes, Summer fun.

Hi GGFS:
Thanks for stopping by!
I have gone down to North Ave. Beach many times, and other parts of the lakefront to see this every year. But the last few years, right in the thick of it, it's SO crowded with the Chicago "masses of humanity" that personally I could leave them alone.

I actually see and hear all the planes right over my yard when they turn around. I could change my mind tomorrow and go, we'll see. In the mean time, the live streaming is great too.
The thunderbirds come on around 3 pm, I think, if you want to catch the 2nd day live tomorrow.

PS; I didn't mean the "freaky" ppl at Woodstock were actual freaks, it was all like "hey, freaky man", the summer of luv! I missed it by a few years, but My pals had older bros/sis at the time who turned us on all about it ;-)

I loved the Video!! I have always loved going to airshows but unfortunately haven't in awhile. While growing up I used to horse back ride and the stables were right next to an airport. I always enjoyed watching the planes above, and it was quite interesting being on a horse while seeing planes.

Last summer the Thunderbirds were at Charleston Air Force Base's open house (they do one every other summer. In the off summers, the Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort holds their air show, usually with the Blue Angels). The day before the show I managed to sneak down and park at a building next to the civil aviation hangars and stood in some hedges to watch planes come in for the show and was there when the 'Birds did their practice run-through. The local constabulary was running people off left & right for safety reasons they said...but managed to miss me standing there in the hedges with another guy and his little kid. It was better than having front row seats...I was 5 times closer to the action than the average Joe would be the next day, and had a blast.

Hi Teresa: I'm glad you enjoyed the video! That would have been interesting being on the horsies with those noisy jets roaring by! I hope one didn't run away or gallop off!

Hey Steve: That was a very interesting story! That must have been way cool! I'm glad you got to find that great front row seat! You are industrious and brave.
Have a fun weekend, everyone!

Amusing Bunni said...

Hi AD33! Aren't they cool? They alternate out here, one year Thunderbirds, then the Blue Angels.
Hope you have a nice Sunday and I guess hot weather is better than hurricanes, monsoons, floods, etc. Stay safe and indoors and take care of your knee.
