I took my kids to the air show today in Peoria, Illinois. Nice weather, but the displays and attendance were not quite up to last year's show. Still and all, it was a good time. There were only a couple of warbird there, but they were all shiny. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

He also did some flybys in formation with an F-16 from the USAF "Viper East" team. They were tucked in tight!

Maybe it's the only OV-1"B Model" Mohawk flying. The a week ago I flew into Airglades Airport (2IS) in central Florida and a Mohawk landed right after me. It was painted in gray tones and had "Air Force" written on the side. It was the second time I'd seen it - coincidentally the one time I'd been there previously, maybe 5 months before.

Nice pics, BTW! I like the BT-16 with exposed innards and the P-51/F-16 flyby. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
