    I so enjoyed this. There is nothing like the sound of military jets. Impressive display, especially the form flights one after another.

    I always like to imagine bringing back the Wright brothers and other early pioneers of powered flight for something like this, and asking them, “whatta ya think?” I’d also include their sister Katharine Wright, who flew with them, and the Frenchwoman Baroness Raymonde de Laroche, the first woman to solo in 1909, six years after the historic 1903 flight.
