Did anyone attend the McChord AFB Air Show this weekend?
It was nothing short of amazing... They had a B-1B, P-3, C-5, C-9, A-10, KC-10, F-16, C-17, MiG-17, F/A-18, F/A-18 Super Hornet, C-130, KC-135, C-141, FedEx 727-200, FedEx Caravan, and lots of others I can't remember. They dropped men and cargo from some 141s, had a 'bombing' of the air field by a B-1B (went supersonic), landed the C-17 and nearly stopped on a dime, and of course the Thunderbirds were there. It was a great show if I ever saw one and if you're in the area and want to see it, I believe they're running it again tomorrow (Sunday), gates open 0900, show starts at about 1000, goes until 1700.
