Hey Zach, spent some time out at Gillespie Field this weekend, huh?

I was going to head over there, but life got in the way. I only live about three miles from there, and some of those things flew over my house. GEEZ, were they loud!

Nice shot, man. Like others, I'd like to see more...

Steve, I know what you mean about things getting in the way. I had planned on going Saturday, then work showed up so I had to take the OT. Did you hear that jet go by! Sunday it was unplanned and he came out of nowhere.

Ohhhh. I LOVE the Zero, Bearcat, and Hellcat picture.

I saw a "dogfight" video (they just went around in circles) between the hellcat and zero. Someone in the IL2 forums (a flight sim) said he spoke to the zero pilot and was speaking with him on ways to beat the hellcat. The zero pilot said something like: "I wish I could do that but the bad guy HAS to lose."

For the record, the first picture is an AT-6 Texan as Felix said, then an a6m zero hellcat and bearcat (smallest), the biplane is a russian Antonov an-2, and last is a t-28.

Just in case you were curious :)

Great pictures by the way!

Thanks insomnia. Like I said, I don't know the planes, I was just trying to id them from a website. It was my first airshow ever, so I pretty happy with the results I got. Still working on more pics, although I'm running out of midnight oil!
