As mentioned earlier in this thread, Ryan and I were lucky enough to check out the departures on Monday following AirVenture. We saw some of the remaining military aircraft depart the airport. The F-16, Chinook, Blues, F-35s, B-52 and B-1 are some of the aircraft that departed on Monday.

Here are a few pictures:

The B-1, was the last one to leave. It took a while, but it was worth the wait! Thanks to @RyanS for letting me tag along....and driving me to the airport!

Nope, we were actually talking about that possibly happening before their break. By lighting just the one afterburner, he kept the smoke visible (on the other nozzle). It also generates a yaw that helps keep the nose up in the turn.

Photo request!

I'm wondering if anyone out there has a decent photo of the GB1 Gamebird flying that I could borrow for a video thumbnail. I don't seem to have any photos of it myself!
