Peter and I went to the Andrews Air Force Base Air Show with friends a couple of weeks ago, and I wanted to share some pictures that I took there since they tie in with Memorial Day. Seeing our military in action was thrilling, and I certainly felt proud to be an American that day :)
Soldiers enjoying watching the air stunts from a primo spot :)
A Blue Angel up close and personal.
The Thunderbirds. AMAZING! If you ever get a chance to see them in action, take advantage of it!
This is the work of a group called the "Skytypers." Pretty neat, huh? The messages were made with puffs of smoke and lasted about 5 minutes.
A bit hard to see, but those are very talented parachutists! They were flipping around and doing zig-zags and other crazy stuff. I totally thought that they were going to crash into each other and/or the ground, but they came out (of course) unscathed :)
My husband is an aerospace engineer specializing in helicopters so this picture was obligatory :) I think this is a Black Hawk. Or maybe a Chinook? I'm obviously not an expert in distinguishing helicopters yet!
Peter on a Navy Seal boat. The different special ops forces had displays of their equipment, uniforms, weapons, etc. set up in a hangar, and let me tell you, our special ops forces are impressive!!!
