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:
