Those Magnificient Men in their Flying Machines!

Thought I would finally get around to posting a few pictures from the Lethbridge Airshow I went to a week or so ago. It was a pretty good show I thought.

The Canadian Army Parachute Team was there and put on a pretty spectacular show:

I caught the A-10 right between the flags several times, hoping to get something dramatic...  This was as good as it got..  Not quite what I was hoping for, but pretty decent I guess.

They had a gorgeous Mustang that had actually seen time in WWII.  I was watching it too much and didn't get a ton of great pics of it...  I need a bigger lens!!!

A crazy wingwalker lady was pretty fun to watch

Finally, the Canadian aerobatics team, the Snowbirds.  They were the grande finale and they were amazing as usual.  They skill of the pilots is unbelievable.  They said the average formation calls for around 6 feet of clearance between aircraft, and on some they overlap each other by 5 feet (in diamond formations etc...).  Amazing!
