Yesterday, I snuck away for a few hours with my husband – no children, a date (of which we don’t have many) – and he took me to one of his favorite events that takes place in Reno – The National Championship Air Races. I love air shows and have not been to one since we lived in Chicago. (that’s been 11 years)
Going out to Stead yesterday instantly reminded me of working in downtown Chicago and hearing the after burners on the planes bounce off the buildings while the pilots were practicing for The Chicago Air and Water Show. If you were lucky enough you would be able to catch a glimpse of the planes as they circled downtown. Many times it was the Air Force Thunderbird’s practicing but I was never this close and able to get such incredible photos on my camera.
This was truly a thrilling experience for me and certainly brought back some very good memories. In addition to the Thunderbird’s show, we got to get up close and personal with a lot of the planes that will be racing this weekend.
My favorite of course was an Australian plane…couldn’t help but make me feel that much closer to home….and what an awesome design on the tail….
