Very much looking forward to it, haven't been to an air show in a very long time.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill

I intend to http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Will be taking my digital camera with me, along with lots of extra batteries and even an extra memory card. I want a zero percent chance of the camera conking out on me when I need it most, so i'm taking every precaution necessary http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ack! that that WOULD be horrible if, even with all the preparations and backups, I forgot to take the lens cap off http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

BTW: Another aircraft I can't believe I forgot to mention, Grumman F8F Bearcat http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
