After that we took the dogs and headed back into Tucson to find another vantage point to watch the free air show that we started watching yesterday. Well we found a great spot down between some scrap yards that ended up with us right next to the runway. Awesome vantage point (although next year I will need to remember to have something to stand on to get me above the fence for the low altitude stuff).
While waiting for the show to start, I snapped a few pics of some neat stuff in the area.

Then I took a second to smell the local desert flowers.
And then is was show time!!

|Check out the Southwest Airlines jet in the background.|
|A bit out of focus, but that is what you get when you try to get a pic of an F-15 on full burner!!|
|Next up was the F-16|
|A good look at the underside of an F-22|
|Hope you didn't blink, because the burners came on and he said, "bye, bye"|
This is just a sampling of the pictures I took. Overall I have almost 1000! It was a good day for the camera!
Meanwhile, back at the rig, what's Jeanie looking at?
