|The A10 Thunderbolt II was first to arrive (earlier than I expected; I only saw it's hindquarters as it passed by)|
|A large transport plane arrived next; I see them often, but this one was definitely arriving for the Airsho.|
|The stealth fighters arrive! For being stealthy, they made a lot of noise and showed up well on digital film.|
|Still, I've never seen one of these up-close before, so I'll be pleased to see it in person tomorrow.|
Finally, the Blue Angels practiced their routine again.
|The pic to the right isn't an illusion -- I clicked that just at the point of a high-speed pass. They're very, very close to one another.|
|In turning around, they cane very close to my building. Gear!|
|They flew around for near 45 minutes. Rock!|
|Destiny is excited as well; tomorrow should be a fun day for the both of us!|
Love the pictures!

Thanks! They were taken from my boss' corner office, using an Olympus C2100UZ - it's combination 10x optical zoom, 2.5x digital zoom, and "anti- jitter" technology allow for great pics. The photos were taken from as much as 4 miles away...
