    Reno Air Races Friday 2010

    Here are some pics I took at the Reno Air Races on Friday...

    What a blast, and you Canadians have one very fine jet flying team there!

    Way to go Snowbirds!

    I used to go down to the Abortsford air show, loved it, I always wanted to go to the Reno air show, supposed to be a step above the rest

    The event is super cool, a must see

    We hesitated to go the first few years after we moved here (don't like crowds). We finally went last year and are now hooked. We'll go every year we can.

    The F-18 Super Hornet demonstration flight was so amazing. When he made his fastest pass, the sonic boom was so loud, I spilled my drink on the guy next to me

    I've been to a ton of military air shows and they are really great, but these are a good combination of military and racing of different classes. It is the national championship, so it brings the best of the best.

    Cool pics Brent. I have yet to see the Snowbirds in action. Any chance your airforce showed of one of the new F35 Jets. I think its a bit early for it to be on the groud as a display but figure they might have flown one past you guys?
    cheers

    No F-35 on the day we were there, but the F18-E was pretty impressive.

    I took 1050 pictures, was just happy to have a few turn out ok!
