Rented a 100-400 for the weekend. Playing with my newly acquired 5D Classic (which needs a thorough cleaning *sadface*) Was going to attend today's show as well, but it's raining. Looks like Friday's practice session would've been a stellar day to see them. Did the best I could, Fullset: http://www.flickr.com …s/7215762478529​8758/show/ (external link)

Nice ! I missed most of the show due to traffic on the pike. All of them look really nice!

Thanks, woke up at 6 to leave Boston around 7. Pulled into the lot around 840. I skipped past the MSP Parking lot, and got off at exit 3. A lot less traffic on the surface streets compared to the MSP exit.

Great shots, and great airshow, but the traffic was horrible on the way in - and I thought I would be there way early (it took 1.5 hours to get from the I-91 to the parking lot - and on the way out a 3:00 the backup was even longer than the way in with people still trying to get in...). I read that after the show they estimated attendance at 150,000, then updated it to 180,000. That's a lot of people.

The sound of an un-silenced military jet engine is something everyone should hear at least once, nothing like it.

The traffic was amazing! I've never had a problem with it before.

Same here, they still look great compared to the more modern machines.

I didn't. The other post about the Thunderbirds did. I was mentioning that it would've been the perfect day for the airshow.

Thanks for the comments guys. There's more of the F-100 on my flickr, and if people really want, I'll do PP to the other F-100 photos I took that I didn't upload.
