Airshow in Ottumwa

Took my youngest son to an air show in Ottumwa (home of Radar O'Reilly) and also home to a WWII navel air station which was the basis for the current airport. They are trying to raise money to restore some of the original buildings and make a museum to the Naval Air Station. It was a good show, we enjoyed it.
















Not a real SR-71, a 1/8 scale jet model built by a guy that worked on the SR-71

Air shows are always a great time. Looks like a nice turnout. I was kinda excited to see an SR71 flying (glad I learned to read). Hated my years at an A10 base, just carry too many munitions. Thanks for sharing.

Just know the A10 and the pilots were GODS to us on the ground during the two conflicts I attended. IMO there has never been a better ground support aircraft than an A10 Warthog. (Excluding choppers) Simply nothing better at inflicting pain and raining hell on an enemy within your perimeter given by them guy's.

I digress, looks like a hell of a show.
