Kdma Airshow

Sun Mar 18, 2007 10:51 am

I sat in my office today doing a rare Saturday's bit of work (thanks to a glitchy company mainframe which failed me mightily yesterday). I had a good view out my window of the whole airshow at KDMA. Very distracting...but lovely and exciting.
If wishes were horses, a Tail Dragger I would fly...

I was there today.  Wink The clouds made for less glare and the temperature a bit cooler, but the wrecked havoc on trying to take pictures. It was hard to take shots in focus.

Some shots I did get:

A-10 Simulated Bombing There was a large wall of fire just prior to this shot, but what happened was the fire appeared and I could immediately feel it from where I was standing before hearing the explosion. Because of that I became distracted and did not take the shot.

During the Blue Angles performance, the airspace in a 5nm radius around DMA was closed up to 17,500 ft. This caused 2 flights inbound to TUS to enter a holding pattern south of Casa Grande for a little bit. Departures were from 21 at TUS during the performance.

The two affected flights were:

On a technical site-related note: Should this thread be in Military Aviation?
I love ASO!
