McChord AFB Air Show

Sun Jun 17, 2001 2:29 am

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.

Sorry to hear you missed it... at least you got to see them practicing.
Yeah- I have family out that way that said they were getting buzzed by the practicing aircraft on Thursday & Friday.

Maybe next year?  Big grin
