The Golden Age of Summerville

Not only did I spend most of Saturday at the air show, but I even spent quite a bit of time photographing the Golden Age of Summerville Festival on Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

This is the front steps of the Linwood Bed & Breakfast.

Air Show Saturday

Wow! What an airshow...something for everyone, including high performance jets, propeller driven biplanes, helicopters, and yes....even people "crazy" enough to jump out of airplanes. The little boy above was so excited, he ignored his mom while she tried to get a picture of him on his granddad's shoulders. The F-22 Raptor (below) was the most anticipated aerial performance of the day. It did not disappoint.

The stealth shape of the F-22 is apparent in the image below.

The Boeing 747 Dreamlifter was also a big hit, not only for its unique shape, but because of its size....hundreds of people could shelter themselves from the Sun by standing underneath its huge fuselage and wings. When the shadows moved, the people moved.

The tail of the Dreamlifter opens so sections of the Boeing 787 can be loaded and flown to Seattle, Washington for assembly.

The boys below were determined to lift the nose of this C-130 Hercules.

This P-51 Mustang (below) peforms a low pass.

The Thunderbirds' famous diamond formation.

Airshow Friday

A C-17 makes a high bank turn. (above) A single Thunderbird F-16 (below) flys by at about 400mph.

The loose Thunderbird diamond awaits a high speed pass by solo pilot #6.

The arrowhead formation comes out of a loop.

Airshow Thursday

A VERY tight 4 ship diamond above. The Sun was at the upper left which back lit the F-16s.

#6 in a knife edge pass, and yes....he was going that fast. I converted this image to black & white since the sky was very dull.

The Diamond Pass (above)

The image above is a 3/4 Diamond Bomb Burst. The #3 jet landed early for some unknown reason.

The three photos below are F-15 Eagles

So close you can see what's for lunch.
