WARBIRDS OVER THE ROCKIES

WARBIRDS OVER THE ROCKIES

I was fortunate enough to attend the 9th annual Warbirds over the Rockies event, and as always, it was an amazing experience. Every day of this 3-day event there was Open flying and from 9Am till 5PM with a noon time show, the “History of Military Aviation show” that was not to be missed. Also on Saturday evening there was an impressive Banquet speaker, Tuskegee Airmen Col. Charles McGee, Pilot of the Red Tail P-51 “Kitten” Add to this full size aircraft flyovers Mass launch of electric warbirds and fire filled pyrotechnic displays, you just can’t have a more exciting time.

(Above) B-25 pilot Lyle Vasser with Steve Forrest’s B-29, and  Jimmy Cowman’s B-17 look pretty good flying together. Everyone had a great flight with a fairly tight formation.

Here are a few pix I snapped.

(Above) Event Originator, Brian O’Meara, had his massive P-47 Jug airborne throughout the event. Mere 123 lbs!

(Above) Part of the full scale, halftime show, a gorgeous, smoke-equipped Hawker Sea Fury.

Also, I stole this YouTube video playing on the WARBIRDS OVER THE ROCKIES website.

Watch for more postings coming from this awe inspiring warbird gathering in Colorado.
