Loving all the photos from Aviation Nation this year. This year was my first time at the show and wow I was blown away. I am currently editing all my videos of the demos from the show. Since everyone seems to be most stoked about the war fighter demo, me included it was the first one I edited and you can watch it below! Enjoy!

Thanks for the look at this! It was hard to piece together from the photos but it looks even better than I imagined. Too bad about the music in the background, that's some footage I wouldn't mind posting on our channel!

Thanks Ryan. Unfortunately we bought the box seats and the PA system is directly in front. Always difficult to get away from that. I am curious to maybe do a poll and see how many people like announcing in the videos or without. I seem to get mixed opinions. Always looking to improve the content.

I only mention the music because we keep everything on our channel music free to avoid any copyright strikes. I am always on the look out for some new people to contribute footage and maybe produce some videos for AS, but avoiding the PA enough is a challenge for all of us :) I'd love to post full routines with music like I did back in the day but it isn't worth the risk of losing access to the channel!

I constantly see comments complaining about the announcer in videos, or thanking us for not adding music. I don't really ever see people asking for the narration. I guess it has probably happened a couple times. Can't make everyone happy!

Great photos everyone. Just a quick review even though it's been almost a month since the show for me. Haven't had a chance to go through pics due to computer issues, but as a first timer I thought the show was pretty damn good. Saturday there was a bit of lag between a few performers and it didn't quite follow the schedule but once things were in the air they clearly made up for it. Sunday was phenomenal other than it being fairly cloudy. The logistics of getting that many people in and out were pretty smooth for me. I got to the speedway about 745 each day and parked with no issue or waiting. The security lines were opened up around 0830 and once through, which was quickly, they loaded you on a bus until approx 0900 when they started moving toward the base. Very painless. Leaving the shows there were the expected lines. Saturday I stuck around for a bit after the Thunderbirds and only waited approximately 20min to get on a bus and drove right out of the lot and onto the highway. I stayed down south of the airport so total time from standing in line to pulling into hotel was about an hour. Not bad i'd say. Sunday I left just before the Tbirds and hopped right on a bus and rolled out. Total travel time 45min from on base to hotel. Met a lot of nice people and everyone of the squadron guys and girls were more than chatty. Food and drinks were standard fare as most airshows are. Not cheap but not pro sports expensive either. I'll definitely be going back. The 8hr drive from ABQ was very worth it. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I'll be at OshKosh for Airventure next year so hoping to put some names with faces there.

Here are a set of photos of the Texas Flying Legends display. It was a very well choreographed display with many fantastic passes.
