Too bad they couldn't build some of it in the South. But Obama and his Unionistas fixed that.

It was a good show especially for the price
of free
Oh that's right. I forgot about the airman at the Jstars. I did see plenty of airmen with thier M9s on wandering around as well. But there was a lot more security at B2.

And, yes that was a great airshow. One of the best I have ever seen.

The ones by the B2 seemed more serious and ready
the others seemed to stand back more
Next year im going to get a video recorder
and be behind the base looking down on nellis (hollywood/alto)

went there for the thunderbird show
More of a wide angle view of the show

This is why Weight and Balance C.G. calculations are important...

As the attached e-mail reads that came with the photograph:
EVA Air Boeing 747-45EM taking off from runway 36L at Amsterdam Schiphol, Netherlands. The great timing and angle just makes this shot, and the size of the plane just looks surreal. The distance to the fence was about 145 meters (around 475 ft.). Damned close, really. I'm wondering how the computed take-off data compared to the actual event.
From the smallest to the largest aircraft, weight & balance calculations are a critical part of flight safety. From the looks of this aircraft, the weight was within the C.G. envelope, but I reckon if they had added one more marshmallow to each snack tray the outcome might have been a bit different.
