It’s Air Show Time Again!

It’s that time of year again and we’re praying for the rain to stop before sunrise on Saturday. This year is a special treat for local photographers at the Wings Over Houston air show since they’ve finally set aside space for shooters and arranged for some flight line passes to be available. I guess my bitching griping must have worked!

Moose Peterson at the Reno Air Races

Moose Peterson has posted a series of really great aviation images from this year’s Reno Air Races. This is some of the best “bird” photography I’ve ever seen. One of these days, when the kids are out of college, I’ve just got to see this in person.
