Prescott Air Fair 2007

Recommended Posts

Here's a few photos from yesterday's Prescott Air Fair. A small show to be sure, but nice for that. Quite a few warbirds there, and some static participation by the US military - though they didn't fly anything this year, despite the promise of various regionally based a/c. One unusual participant was this US Navy C-2 - hadn't seen one in person before:

The Air Foce contributed a new Texan:

Funnily enough, with all the Tornadoes based over here (German in New Mexico, Brits at Yuma and in for Red Flag) they aren't as uncommon as you might think here! But none at this little show!

Hot stuff was restricted to a static F/A-18F; the promised F-16 from Luke and AV-8B from Yuma didn't make the trip. Nor did the KC-135 from Phoenix or V-22 from Yuma. So military participation was down over last year - the war rears its head again. :rolleyes:

A reasonable selection of warbirds, as usual. Lots of pyros for the kiddies :rolleyes: and low passes were at a premium. But a show that's worth the trip nevertheless. :)

As I said to Jack, if you can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars restoring the thing to fly, you could at least spend $20 for some poor IPMS sap to research a proper paint scheme for you........... :rolleyes:

You should have seen it when the fin flash was backwards...at least they corrected that. These guys actually try to defend that scheme as accurate. Now sure what they are drinking....
