Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July to all Americans! What better way to celebrate the holiday than with a good old-fashioned airshow! I attended the Tacoma Freedom Fest today to watch one. Aircraft old and new performed, and as always, it was a real crowd pleaser. The performance takes place over Commencement Bay in Puget Sound along the Tacoma waterfront. What I wanted to see was the performance put on by a F-22 Raptor. This was a special treat for the crowd, as one never made an appearance before in our airshows. You can see it in the photo above, cruising along at slower speeds with a P-41 Mustang. This was the best shot I got, considering how fast these super-sonic jets fly. I just so happen to have a photo show that I made a few years ago from a different local airshow set to patriotic music and fireworks effects. I thought it would be appropriate to post it here with the link to the show: http://www.photoshow.com/watch/vZ2HD9qg  Enjoy!
