Star Spangled Salute Air Show


We made the trip down to OKC this weekend to check out the Star Spangled Salute air show at Tinker Air Force Base. IT. WAS. HOT--but definitely worth the sunburn and dehydration. 

I LOVE planes, so I was a kid in a candy store for about 5 hours. 

The show featured the Thunderbirds, a P-51 Mustang, F-35 Lightning, KC-135 Stratotanker, F-18 Hornet and a B-2 bomber. 

I took a walk down memory lane as The University of Oklahoma had one of their trainer aircraft (Piper Warrior - Crimson 14) for the audience to view. I actually flew this plane while studying to get my pilots license at OU in 2010/2011. 

My favorite part of the show came when a vintage P-51 Mustang took flight with an F-35 Lightning in what is called the Heritage Flight. It was an incredible moment. 

Here are a few more snaps from the show:
