I'd love to see both Ghost and Wraith fly! :-)

Especially Ghost - the pixelated F-16!

Re: Nellis AFB Aviation Nation 2019

Hi Tracy I like to be at the crowd line around the centre one day to catch the aircraft taxying past you on their way to the runway and the other day at the northern end to catch the release of flares and aircraft starting to bank to the left to go round behind the crowd. I used a 70-200 on a full ...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019
