Alliance Air Show

October 21, 2013 2 comments

Alliance puts on a free air show that was most enjoyable.  The weather was great, the price was right, and we had a great day.  We are still amazed at the ability of the stunt pilots.  Almost a controlled cash without crashing!

The Tora! Tora! Tora! was the most spectacular, I don’t know where they got all those Zero aircraft.  The pyrotechnics that accompanied the display was awesome as well.  And, as usual, the Shockwave jet truck (powered by three (!) jet engines) was a crowd pleaser.

Several parachite demos were powerful
