Indy Air Show

Kevin and I both had wanted to go to an air show forever. It was one of those bucket-list things. So the day finally came. We are definitely going again. Next time maybe we will bring ear plugs!

A military, transportable air traffic control center:

There were lots of airplanes and other vehicles for the children to climb on and explore:

Picnicing during the show:



A replica of the Wright Brothers' first airplane:

The girls trying out a simulator of the first flight.

Constant entertainment in the sky:

This crazy guy crawled out of the airplane mid-sky, and then kept waving his arms at the crowd while the airplane did spins, loops, and flew upside down. What kind of mama raised this boy?

The Blue Angels were a highlight, of course:

Oh that brings back memories. My grandpa loved airshows and he piloted a small plane until I was 7 or 8. One of my earliest memories is flying to an airshow with him. Fun times. :)
