THE SKY IS FALLING!

Posted in around_SoFlo on April 27th, 2012 by Scott

That’s the first thing that came to mind this afternoon while sitting in my house. It didn’t take long to connect the dots however. It is Fleet Week here in FLL. And that can mean only one thing. The aerial might of the US Military is in town and getting ready for the Air Show this weekend. It wasn’t thunder I was hearing, it was the sound of Freedom! We were treated to multiple fly overs by the US Air Force Thunderbirds at what seemed like tree top level. My neighborhood appears to be one of the turning points for part of their show. Incredible hardware, unforgettable sound. I was lucky enough to get to meet and photograph the team in their lair a few years ago…somewhere in the Nevada dessert. What a cool experience to see them in their house. Now I got to seem them in mine.

A pair of birds parked in the driveway –¬†Lockheed Martin F-16C/D Fighting Falcon.

 

 

The team relaxing on the ground.

 

 

Polished and ready to rock – top speed 1,320 mph / 29,000 lbs of thrust

 

The entire flock.

 

 

That is one bad ass air pump.
