Was there on Saturday. Never saw an F-35 anywhere.

Exiting wasn’t bad this year - left at 1700, and got directed to secondary runway taxi strip, headed north. They stopped us once so the bunny jet could depart, but then back open for far speedier than normal egress. Wish they had done that in years past.

No F-35 on Saturday?

So F-35 never showed. It was on static list.

Turns out best place to see an F-35 was London, Ontario last weekend. There were two up there, an Air Forceone and a Naval one. Also got to see the Super Hornet demo again.

I was very fortunate with the lighting and with the fact that there weren’t a lot of civilian performers pumping out smoke. I love Oceana, but the haze from the runway heat, the smoke from prior performers, and the usual cloudless sky all work together to sabotage my photography efforts.

Here's my set from the NAS Oceana air show. The weather was utter crap as usual, you can blame hurricane Jose sitting 250 miles offshore for that, but it made for some awesome low lever vapour coming off the Hornets. It did mean that the air power demo was cancelled because of it but at least the 2 aggressor Hornets beat up the airfield a bit.
