    Sean Tucker is an incredible stunt pilot. He takes "The Right Stuff" to a whole new level!

    This is a great air show. I went last year, when they had the Thunderbirds. Great time, the F-22 is a rediculous aircraft.


    Enjoy! Stop by the Coast Guard display for me and say hey.

    The Andrews show is always one of the best ones out there. Lots on display.

    And LITS hit the nail on the cranium: the F-22 display is jaw-dropping! We've already given the Strike Eagle Demo team crew the warning that they will be the demo right before the Raptor. Talk about being shown up by the next act! :redface:

    That is an excellent lineup! I wish I could be there.

    (Talk to "the candy bomber" if you get a chance. That is a great story, and he is an interesting guy.)

    So did anyone go? A debrief would be nice. The wx was beautiful Saturday ( unfortunately I didn't make the airshow, got diverted to Tyson's Corner by 3 teenage girls who wanted to shop instead..imagine?)

    You'll have to put your foot down when they're asking for Tyson's Corner II.

    That was my mistake!! I did put my foot down and ended up with a very cute pair of Steve Madden's...
    Now I have to explain these charges on the plastic to hubby when all the while he thought we were admiring the F-22 and watching aerial acrobatics... I am in so much trouble! :redface: :biggrin:
