The Birds Are Back In Town!

Every year there is an Airshow at Jones Beach on Memorial Day weekend. Each year the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds alternate as the ‘anchors’ of the show. This year its the Thunderbirds turn, and like a giddy kid, I brought my six year old to Republic Airport to see them take off and land. There truly is something awesome, and indescribable about watching these aircraft leap from the ground and head skyward… freedom, power, and attitude are all adjectives that come to mind, mixed with pride that those are my fellow Americans flying those machines. My hats off to those pilots that make something so incredibly difficult look so easy. Amazing stuff.

Tomorrow we head to the beach to see them perform. News says there is a chance of rain. Hope it holds off until they are done. Be disappointing to wait a whole ‘nuther year to see these guys strut their airplane stuff.

Happy Memorial Day!
