The 2009 Join Services Open House Air Show, Or, Guy Heaven

Today we made our way to the Joint Services Open House. Which is a really fancy way of saying, military air show. Not only did they have various planes and helicopters performing and folks jumping from the sky, they also had a a significant number of planes on the ground you could oggle and walk through. You could chat it up with the folks who flew the planes as well, which was definitely a treat. All in all, the 10 year old boy in me was in heaven. Big planes, big helicopters and guns - what else could a guy want?

The weather even behaved, and while a bit on the chilly side, didn't rain on us.

We didn't quite stay long enough to see the Thunderbirds perform, we did see one of my favorite planes - the A10 Thunderbolt do its thing.

I think Shira even enjoyed the day a bit. Though, I don't think she walked around with her jaw open like I did.
