CK,
I've been to the races and it can really be a blast! Last weekend I went to the Duluth Air show and saw the Thunderbirds perform. I will have to post the pics of it, I got some pretty good ones. Oh, I thnk they fly too, your funny car may win off the line, but I'm pretty sure there are none that will do 2.0 Mach like the F-16.

You got me on that one. I've been to some air shows not to mention I've seen hundreds of F-14's do touch & goes from a carrier deck in the Meditterean Sea.My vantage point was from the foxel of the USS Talbot.
Having friends with airplanes ,I've done a few negative G's which is cool ,but to go mach 2.My Lord ,that would be a thrill!

Going to the drags is such a complete motorhead expierence at BIR.
You get to meet the owners,drivers,crew chief,crew.It is 1 of the only camping venues on the circuit ,which gives the teams a chance to bring in the families for a mini vacation. The season is almost over so they let their hair down a bit. There is 4 days of being with people you've met over the years &that come every year.So mix in a few fireworks shows ,a night of great live music.There are 40,000 people that stay at BIR for this event.
Anything you can put a motor in a drive around is there. Bathtubs ,barstools,go-carts,mini crotch rockets.
Everyone dresses up their camp site in a racing theme.
Primitive camping is nicknnamed the zoo.
We go for a tour at dusk on the quad towing a trailer loaded with bevies & friends.That is when the wildlife comes out.Too funny!
Then the parties ie... Miller,Bud ect.
Oh, these guys are faster 330 mph in the 1/4 mile at 4.5 seconds running 8000 hp

It's amazing to see a jet drop out of the sky & land on the tiny deck of a carrier.

CK,
You beat me to some plane pics. Those are absolutley Awesome, but I did notice they were pretty big. I think one of the moderators might give you a warning,. or they may just resize them for you. Anyway, GREAT PICTURES, and I will try to get mine posted tongight.

I know they aren't as good as the two you put up, but I took these myself.

I haven't been to the Duluth airshow in years.. around 1996 or so.. had realllly great seats on top of an old building that year 20 feet off the ground.

who cares,jets are cool & I'm glad that you enjoyed yourself.
We used to play this game on our ship where we knew the jets were comming ,but when? I'd be looking through the big eyes for puffs of smoke on the horizon. You'd see a jet way off &the next thing you knew it would be screaming over your deck,nearly knocking you over.
This is the sister ship to the one I was on. We traveled as an escort for the carrier.Our main mission was submarine detection.
