Excellent air show pics from last year's Edwards AFB show. I have seen several posted here before, but not all of them.

I wonder how much it cost to take that pic? And they still need a C5A, B1B and an F-15.

Hopefully, I can get some pics here at Robins AFB, we are having our Air Show next month. Come to think of it, I have a friend in the Picture/Multimedia shop, I will get some really high resolution pics if at all possible.

That is an actual plane with the paint job. Seen it before.

No, its not, unless they did a really subtle job of photshopping it into this photo too:



Look closely. Plus there are dozens of photos of that plane with that paint job out there.

I won't forget, I am hoping to see the F-22 for the first time if Robins is lucky enough to get a visit. Haven't seen anything yet on what aircraft will be attending but we usually get a good mix of USAF, USA, USMC, and USN aircraft. Thank God, they had the Air Show in May and not in August like they had a couple of years ago, the humidity and heat in August makes our flight line farking hell.

best airshow on the planet.

a few years back, take that multi aircraft photo and add in the b1b, f-15, c141, AND SR-71.

and here are some pics I took at the 03 show, 04 was canceled iirc.

That is the B-1 also known as The Bone. It is my all time favorite plane.

There was a post back in '01 when we had just put SF troops on the ground in Afghanistan where they requested air support but the only thing near by was an empty B1 it apparently came in supersonic and blasted the taliban with a huge sonic boom and came back on a run and stood on its tail and blasted them with full burner.
