Those are neat shots Douglas! My next show is Alliance, and it's now called an "Air Expo". The abbreviated event will take place on Friday and Saturday and the flight window will be a couple of hours in the afternoon. There will be a static display ramp and dawn/dusk photo tours, but no photo pit. Thunderbirds and the F/22 Demo Team are up this year. The last few years we have gotten murdered in social media due to the changes, but the cold hard facts are, the Alliance business sector has grown exponentially and a full blown air show just is not possible anymore. Ross and his Dad didn't build that airport for a hobby, it's a business venture and it's doing what it was meant to do. We are fortunate that the powers that be worked around the growth for as many years as they did.

I'm going to look on the bright side, "Air Expo" won't be a four day pummeling like the Alliance Air Show was, and this new format might give Chandler and me some additionally unique access, "WeeBeeSee!" I'm going to give Chili the task of still work while I focus on video. We've been invited to shoot "Wings Over Houston" the next weekend and I think we will take them up on it if the weather looks good.

Thank you Jim. I got three more shows to go this year, Atlantic City in Aug, Andrews and Oceana in Sept on the same weekend. Supposedly they will have a B-1 B-2 B-52 flyby at the Andrews show but the official website hasn't stated such. Maybe they will get deployed to Asia before the show... If such flyby does happen I will need to bring a lens wider than 200mm to get them all in the frame. That would be a lifer for me. I did see such flyby in 2020 but not at a show and they didn't fly together.

Love the F-22 with the jet exhaust. It loos like the F-22 was on a sandy beach
