luke air force days

We had brilliant intentions of going to Luke Days to see the air shows and tour the planes, etc, but with Dan at work and Sean at a scouting function, I just didn't have the energy to wrestle the younger two by myself.  It was a warm day, too, so we decided to just watch the airshow from the side of the road. 

E. and C. gave it about 5 minutes before they were bored to death.  Good call.

I love how these next few turned out using some interesting edits in color:

Doesn't it look like you're looking down on a space shuttle orbiting the earth?  ha.

Those pilots are sure talented, and although the fly-bys can be noisy, I'm very grateful to live so close to an air force base, to hear them daily as a reminder that they are here to fight for us and protect us as a country.
