2014 Tinker AFB Air Show

 This weekend was the Tinker AFB Air Show, and while we didn't go to the show itself, we had pretty good viewing from the Base RV Park. You may ask, why didn't you go to the show since you were right there? Well after 24 years in the Air Force and physically working 24 Air Shows we just had no desire to fight the crowds. We do however still enjoy watching the USAF Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels fly. It's been awhile since I've seen the Thunderbirds so I wanted to get some shots of them, all the pictures you see here were taken while sitting outside the RV here at the park.

 As with most airshows, several vintage aircraft performed.

 Check out the flames on this MIG as it rounded the park.

 The Air Forces Parachute Team jumped in.

 This guy came low enough to count the rivets on the plane.

Of course the Thunderbirds stole the show. If you'd like to see more airshow photos, click on the link to our Flickr Gallery on the right side of the page.

We still have a couple of weeks to go here in OKC before the next leg of our adventure continues, but until then we have things to keep us busy here. So until we meet again....................................
