Cool shot, was an F-15 part of the display, and what was the a/c to the far left (looks like a King Air?)

Amazing technology. I'll give that to the yanks. But what aggressive technology.

Powerful display, I just wish the U.S. would go back to using these beauties to defend instead of offend...

So good to see the BUFF (Big Ugly Fat Fellow as they used to call the B-52)in the lead. An outstanding view really.

The person from Canada asking if the one on the far left is a king air... It is a King Air, in the USAF, its called a C-12.

Beautiful combo shot! That FA-117 looks like a boomerang and the B-52 just looks like the monster it is! I bet it was quite a sight, and a sound! Thanks for sharing it with us! Nicely done!

What would have made this complete would have been an SR-71 blackbird.

5 stars for this great shot! It is amazing to see all those aircraft in this picture! But what about the C-5 Galaxy, and the F-15 Eagle (which was already mentioned), and lots of others like the E-8 J-STARS and the KC-10 Extender for instance!

Excellent capture, but it's missing one of the most formidable aircraft in the American arsenal, the A-10 Thunderbolt (Warthog)

From Canada

Wow that is amazing...the b-1 looks tiny to the b52 and even the kc-135 is smaller..at least by the size dimensions on this image...

We already knew that that the KC-135 which is of course a 707 is smaller... thing is look how much bigger the Buff is even than a full-on C-17 Globemaster III, capable of lifting entire Chinooks in its belly! That is impressive.

Others have mentioned the lack of the F-15, but there is also another which is missing. The mighty A-10 is also not seen flying amongst it's bretheren.
