2016 Airpower over Hampton Roads Airshow

Post by Airshow4444 » Thu Feb 09, 2017 8:27 pm

April 22nd-24th, 2016 - Langley AFB, Hampton ,VA

Celebrating 100 years of Langley AFB, the 2016 show featured the USAF Thunderbirds, F-22 Raptor, and much more. Here's a few of my pictures from the event.

It was certainly great to see airshows back at Langley!

Three F-35s were at the show although only one flew. One was used as a spare jet while the other was a static display. It was interesting to watch them tow it through the static display several times when t-storms approached...
