This is the Tower where they let us on to view the planes practicing strafing.
This photo shows the targets they used to hit during the strafing practice. Pretty good at 400 miles an hour.
The planes used today were the F-10 Warthogs. Trying to get good photos as they flew by us about 50 yards away was not easy. Especially while they were flying at about 400 MPH.
This was such a special day, and what a rush to see this being done so close was really a treat. These pilots were outstanding, and the noise of those guns going off was REALLY LOUD. You really can't imagine what it sounds like until you are there.
I should have put this photo on first, as this shows the planes firing at the targets. You really should here and see this in person. What a rush as these guys go by at 400 MPH and fire those guns. It sounds like being in a 50 gallon barrel and shooting off 100 large fire crackers all at once. Oh man, this was so much fun. Even the ladies were impressed.
I wanted a place to show my photographs. I am not a professional but enjoy taking pictures of landscapes and hardscapes. My camera is not fancy, just a small OLYMPUS Stylus 810 with 8.0 megapixels. Someday I will purchase a better camera, but for now this is all you get. Enjoy!!!
