The folks at Dover put on a great show today! The weather was overcast for most of the day with some open patches late in the afternoon. It was non stop action starting at 11AM.

Besides the performers, the base had their act together with the parking. I've started to avoid going to some shows now knowing that I would be stuck for hours trying to leave afterwards.

Here at Dover I was on Rt. 1 within 20 mins! Amazing job with the folks directing traffic.

Only managed to process photos of the F22 demo and Heritage flight tonight. It's been a very long day for me. I'll add more of the show in the coming days.

Finally wrapped up my show photos from the Saturday show. See the Flickr album link 2 posts above.

I saw some photos from the Sunday show on Facebook and it looked like no clouds for the show today! The light for photography in the late afternoon would've been great.

Nice pictures! I don't get why more airshows don't do what Dover did, by adding the A-10 fly bys and T-6's. It would be cool to see more of that...A-10s, F-15s, F-16s, etc. Most airshows only seem to think if they can't get a demo team, that's it.
