Lackland Airshow 2010

Kudos to my friend Michelle for introducing us to the Lackland Airshow, it was awesome. Every year Lackland Airforce Base puts on this airshow. My boys LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Days later, Devan is still talking about the airshow and asking when we can go to it next. Oh and did I mention, it was free! When Devan talks about it, he reminisces about how the planes flew right over his head, how loud they were, and how he got his very own airplane to take home. Not only were there planes to watch in the air, but they also had lots of planes and helicopters on the ground to look at and tour. There were many booths with food and souvenirs set up. All of the airmen and women helping out there were so nice to the boys and seemed to really enjoy making them happy. I sure do appreciate these people and the service they give to our country. One of the things I really liked about the airshow was the sense of patriotism and pride it made me feel for this country. God Bless the USA :)

There were so many neat planes displayed

"Spooky" A plane flown in Vietnam. The boys got to go in and tour this plane. They thought it was pretty neat.
Devan loves "Airwolves" AKA helicopters
Tristan was hypnotized by this. It caught his eye and he just walked up and stared at it for awhile.
Devan in another helicopter, trying out the machine gun.
Tora! Tora! Tora! Pearl Harbor reenactment. This was really neat. They had fires going off on the ground and lots of planes and smoke!

What boy wouldn't love this?
Or this?

As we were leaving, this plane was doing some cool tricks. To bad I can't capture the motion, but he was twisting, flipping, and stopping in mid air.
