Air Show




Ken and I went to  St Thomas air port   to watch a wonderful and jaw dropping Great Lakes International Air Show .

It was awesome . I have been to many air shows over the years but this one was the best . It was all paid for by Ken’s work and I got to meet a lot of the people he works with . It was a day of fun sun  good food and awesome folk. We were in the VIP  tent and area front row seats to the runway !

I didn't take my camera cause I wanted Ken to be the photographer for this  as he doesn’t get much time for it and the photos and video he took was fantastic . He put some of his fave photos and videos together yesterday and made a DVD  to music . There was this one Pilot  Sean Tucker who was amazing in his acrobatic red plane named Oracle Challenger III  . He is the best in the world   and it was fantastic that he was talking to the audience  and fans from the cockpit as he was in the middle of his stunts .If you would like to see the DVD  that Ken did please go to  .

                                            Here are some of the photos Ken took as well !

This is the P51 C Mustang a long range escort fighter . Flown by the famous Tuskegee Airmen . There is a move about the history of this plane and it’s pilots called  Red Tails . We have seen it and it is a good movie .
