A few highlights:

 

Got to see an F-35, F-22, and A-10 up close as well as flying.  F-35 and P-51 Mustang Heritage Flight.

Always fun to see these planes up close! :great:

 

​They opened up to the public a little more this year, I could have reached out and touched the canon on the A-10.  Last year they kept the F-22s in sight, but far from public viewing, this year they had them displayed alongside the F-35s.

 

The public is allowed to sit on the airfield within a few hundred feet of the runway, all the performances were held directly over the runway with the sun at our backs.  It is being described as the largest air show in Canada.  There were a lot of planes missing due to hurricane relief missions, but there were still a lot of notable statics and performers.  Had to 'jet' a bit early due to the record breaking temperatures that day, so missed the Snowbirds performance, I caught them last year though, but didn't have my cameras with me.

Love the rust on the tip of the A-10's rotary cannon.

Not a show horse this one, this... is a warbird.

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

This game needs to go to tier 11 so we can have A-10s!!! 

 

There is a National Guard base near me and I see them flying overhead almost every day.

There is a mod to replace the IL-40 model with an A-10.  It looks pretty wild flying through the game.  I haven't tried it in a while, so not sure if it still works in the current game version.
