Air Show Over Da Hood - Prelude to Aviation Nation 2017

This weekend is the Aviation Nation Airshow at Nellis AFB and I may not be able to make it this year. In the meantime the aircraft have been slowly trickling in to the airfield and Bettina was able to get some good shots of a few of this year's entries. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

A TBF (TBM?) Avenger!! Wow! I don't ever recall seeing one of these at the air show

Actually a regular visitor over the skies of Las Vegas we see these quite often, but they're still popular attractions at the air show

FiFi IS HERE!!!!!
There was some doubt that the world's only flying B-29 Superfortress would make it but Bettina - bless her heart - got off several excellent shots, right from our backyard!!
The last time I saw FiFi was back in the late-'70s/early '80s at an air show at Goerge AFB, CA.


B-25 Bomber

Our camera's seem to take forever to focus and it's amazing Bettina gets as many good shots as she does - sure do miss manual focusing


  1. Superb photos by Bettina Ed! It must be hard snaooing planes in flight like that! Superb!

  2. Thanx Woodsy! Actually Bettina gets a LOT of awesome pics - most of which have never been posted. But I will say she lucked out being in the backyard with the camera just as these flew over.
