Every few years the Naval Air Base just to the east of Key West opens it’s doors for a free air show which highlights the Blue Angles. The air show also includes WWII Airplanes, biplanes, stunt planes, an aerobatic hilliocopter and lots of static displays. To top it off the show is free and the day we went was a total blue sky day perfect for watching planes fly and for getting sunburned (which we did). Thousands of people showed up and it was a great day for all. Here’s a few pictures of the show, hope that you like them.
|Ever hear of Radio Free Cuba? This plane flys every day over the Florida Keys (every day) transmitting FM and TV signals to Cuba... your tax dollars at work.|
|The Budweiser Clydedales...|

After walking around the displays I started taking pictures of the air show in the sky.

|He flew on his side, upside down and managed to flip this plane end over end in mid air!|
|Look at the top of the wing an you can see the woman doing wingwalking!|
|A heart produced by two planes|
|High powered takeoffs|
|precision fly bys|
|So many Gee's that the very air above the wings seperates into vapor!|
|A fast break away into ...|
|into a star burst!|
|The final pass after a sunburned day.|
