Next Year, Bring Beer, Watch For Free!

Smyrna has an air show every June -- a political sop to the 1971 closing of Sewart Air Force Base. I have a prime viewing location at the farmhouse, being less than a mile from the airfield where the show is held, and an unobstructed view to the west from the backyard, looking towards the airfield.

Ed & Michele pull in -- my first visitors from Nashville to the farmhouse!

U.S. Navy Blue Angels in their F/A-18 Hornets, doing what they are paid to do.

Tight, tight, tight!  One has to admire this skills involved to fly 18" off the next wing.

Blue Angels' C-130.

An amazing stunt. Should have gotten video, as this is preceded by mock dogfighting with insanely close head-on passes between the fighters, mainly flying sideways and upside down.

Beautiful day for a cookout in the yard!
