"Let Freedom Roar"

2005 NAS/JRB Willow Grove Air Fest
If you live in the Philly/Jersey area and you haven't been to this show --you are missing out. This was my first air show --and wow, I was speechless. The F-16, the Blue Angels...the MPs...

The Sage Family takes on the Blue Angels

I have a really crappy digital camera (can all of you please remind me in July that I do not need a new bag for my birthday --I need a decent digital!). I should have taken my Nikon, but I hate lugging it and the giant lens around... I will share the pictures anyway because we had such a great time and were all so in awe of these pilots.

This was our view from the Jeep in the grid lock traffic on the way there (note: avoid our mistake and do not wait until 12pm to go...go early!):

Here are some of the highlights of the day:

I have to be honest and say that I didn't really enjoy the Show-Copters portion of the show -- With the smoke and the spiraling downward I felt as if I was watching one of our guys get shot down. Just as I was conscious of the fact that it was making me uncomfortable, Busta turned to me and said, "Mommy, this is making my belly feel bad." Yeah, me too buddy...

Some cool stuff on the ground:
Very Loud
USMC hanger
We got to go inside that one
The pilots

Ninja even with the earplugs in:
Holding his ears all day

Overpriced Air Show toys:
Talking Jeep

Watching the Blue Angels:
The Man and the boy
Dancing Boy and Little People love

The Boys and their heroes:
Boys and an A-10 pilot
Justice and the MPs

Go see THIS SHOW --You won't regret it!

(Busta has a Memorial Day message up at his site...)
