Air Show, Hangar 24 AirFest, 2018

Let's all go to the air show; The Hangarfest air show is held at the Redlands Municipal Airport in beautiful downtown Redlands, California, home of the Hangar 24 craft beer brewery. Here's how it looked using the Pentax K-S2 and the Tamron 70-200mm lens:

Heritage flight; the designs for the F-16 Viper and P-51 Mustang are separated by only 30 years:

Drag race; Jon Melby in the sponsor Pitts S-1 biplane graciously admits defeat to Bill Braack and the Smoke n' Thunder Jet Car:

All 280,000 lbs of March AFB's C-17 Globemaster III bringing the clouds:

All 800 lbs of Kent Piesch's Jelly Belly plane partially touches down in an uncommitted landing:

Red Bull also gives you rotary wings; Aaron Fitzgerald trustfalls the Bo 105 helicopter seen in the movie Spectre:

Trucks get such poor MPG; Hayden Proffitt's twin-jet engined Hot Streak II clouds the crowd in spent jet fuel:

Beer Festival; the house brewer brought a dozen varieties, and 29 other breweries had selections of their own with $1 2oz sampler pours:

Light the fires, then put 'em out; Greg Colyer's Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star clears the way for Cal Fire to respond to a call:

For dessert: the "twilight show", moments after sunset, featuring the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Hornet Demo Team:
