Good morning, I decided to make the trip down to Andrews this year and boy was I glad I did!

Nothing like hearing the UH1's do a flyby while Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" is playing on the loudspeakers

Overall I would say it was a great airshow, should they host again next year I will definitely make the drive down. They had a good variety of statics on display, and the performer lineup was solid.

Please feel free to check out the rest of my gallery on the show:

Those are some wonderfully exposed images. Number 2 is my favorite.

Thanks! the Sally B (played Belle in some scenes in the movie) still flies over in England, from my understanding this B-17 for the majority of the movie played the Belle and will be based out of Geneseo, NY for a couple years.
