The End... and the Beginning...

This weekend marked the end of an era... the TajMaWall mini-ramp shall be sessioned no more. We put a good hurtin' of grinds, slides, rock-n-rolls, and even INVERTS on it (well, not all of us) but we had a good last session. But fear not, it shall live again. We will rebuild it, bigger, better, faster, and still in control of the Cretins... I can't wait Travio. I envy your membership to the club of F.R.O.s. (ramp owners)

This weekend also was the beginning of the Kentucky Derby Festival. Thunder Over Louisville! is a gigantic Air Show with amazing demonstrations by several of our armed forces most bad ass aircraft. I knew the F-22 Stealth Fighter was awesome, but to see it stall and hang in the vertical position, then pitch forward and stall and hang in a nose down position was mind blowing. Even a self-induced falling like a rock flat spin was not a problem for this machine. Opponents will say it's built for destruction, but I don't care... it's bad ass and I hope we NEVER have to use it for it's intended purpose. If our enemies had seen the demo, I believe they'd shake our hands and say have a nice day, thank you very much. Seriously, it was impressive.

However, as much as I love the sound of a jet fighter screaming over head, it was not what got me super stoked. A 28 minute fireworks show didn't do it either.

THIS is the greatest highlight of the day... THIS is the BEGINNING I've been anticipating...

    He was diggin' the planes. He didn't seem to recognize the sound was coming from them. When it got really loud, he looked puzzled. But he really liked the BIG planes, like the C130 and the refueling tanker.

    That's the thing about stealth, Gimpy. You *don't* see it.

    Indy is way too cute!

    nice shots nik!! get the boy rollin'!!

    growing up in fayetteville near fort bragg and pope afb, i say many an air show as a kid, blue angels, golden knights, lots of big aircraft dropping all kinds of stuff, its impressive to say the least, not to mention the lines of c-130's that flew over my dads house daily.

    Jumped out of a number of C-130's back in the day. Good Times.
