The Oregon International Airshow

Seth and I decided to splurge a little.

Seeing the Air Show from far away wasn't good enough.

We'll be leaving Oregon in a year, anyway.

We decided to purchase tickets and go inside!!



We were very excited!!

We showed up an hour before the event started to get a great spot.

And...



...we DID!

Let me just say, watching the air show inside the airport is SO much better than watching it from far away.

After the Lucas Oil guy flew a welcome flight, we had the Star-Spangled Banner sung to us by the "flying tenor."





I was impressed he could sing while doing flying!

Not only flying, but doing stunts, too!

Seth won a little item...



...he spun a wheel and got it.

Porter was thrilled!



In fact, I think he was more interested in that little toy plane than the actual planes!

The F-15 almost stopped your heart...



We saw and felt the afterburner.

And, Porter...



We saw some amazing stunts...



And, Porter...



We even saw a helicopter go upside down!!!



Twice!

And, Porter...



There were RC airplanes...



...and descendants of famous pilots...





And, Porter...



A pilot made a smoke ring and flew through it!



Twice!

Even a bomber flew directly overhead!



And, Porter...



My favorite was the fighter pilot...





And the jet car, airplane race...



I enjoyed the whole show!



Even, and especially, the part by my little pilot.
