U.S.A.F Thunderbirds Air Show

|


Oh yes, this is another back log. So while waiting for the green light to post up more flower and nature photos of the awesome JPM Event last week at Bukit Tinggi, I've decided to take a look at some of my photos from the USAF Thunderbird airshow (Thanks Matt).

If you are 7 and you have an ambition to be a jet fighter pilot, this is probably a good show to see what you could probably pull off in a F-16 in 20 years time, provided if you succeed pulling off the maneuvers for the first time.

I am not a big fan of air planes probably because for one, nothing inspired me to be a pilot and two, its 10 times the fun driving a LP640 at a jet fighter speed. Then again, it's a whole new opinion when it comes to airshows with real fighter planes.

Overcast sky with a slight drizzle, my attention was more towards watching the acrobatics with my own eyes rather than through the camera. Here are some of the photos that I took - which include a couple of snapshots of my friend Jason and his girlfriend Stephanie. A very big thank you to Matthew for inviting us over.



The Malaysian owned Sukhoi (or was it Sukoi) taking off.





That's 4 and the other 2 was circling around the back.





Ah yes, the bombing pose. Jet fighter inspired perhaps.





Mmm. Something doesn't look so good.



An emotive shot.
