Great photos in this thread, I thought I would share a couple I've taken recently while visiting the American West. I loved photographing all the great canyons and mountains.

Let's all go to the air show; The Planes of Fame air show is held at the 1,100 acre Chino Airport in beautiful downtown Chino, California, which features two air museums and is home to 1,100 planes. Here's how it looked using the Pentax K-S2 and the 50-200mm kit lens:


Opening ceremony and National Anthem; a P-51 Mustang leads two P-47 Thunderbolts and two P-38 Lightnings. What could be more American than two P-38 Lightnings?

...How about three P-38 Lightnings?

Another day in Chino; a MiG-15 operator watches a passing P-63 King Cobra:

Even the planes watch the planes; a SNJ-5 Texan pilot spots a scrambling F-86 Sabre:

Let's all go to the air show; The Hangarfest air show is held at the Redlands Municipal Airport in beautiful downtown Redlands, California, home of the Hangar 24 craft beer brewery. Here's how it looked using the Pentax K-S2 and the Tamron 70-200mm lens:

Heritage flight; the designs for the F-16 Viper and P-51 Mustang are separated by only 30 years:

Red Bull also gives you rotary wings; Aaron Fitzgerald trustfalls the Bo 105 helicopter seen in the movie Spectre:

Trucks get such poor MPG; Hayden Proffitt's twin-jet engined Hot Streak II clouds the crowd in spent jet fuel:

Beer Festival; the house brewer brought a dozen varieties, and 29 other breweries had selections of their own with $1 2oz sampler pours:
