It's obvious if you look around here that I'm an air show fan. With this gallery, I'm adding yet another air show to the collection. Nellis Air Force Base is the "Home of the Thunderbirds." Each year at the end of the air show season, they put on a show for the good citizens of las Vegas. Free parking. Free entrance. Great static and flying exhibits! So I went this year, and while there shot some of the Las Vegas strip. Enjoy.
I find it interesting. As you walk around the strip, and through the casinos ... almost nobody is smiling whose smile hasn't been purchased in some fashion. But at the airshow, almost everyone is smiling. Big ear-to-ear grins when the jets fly over. Big smiles talking to the pilots and crews. Big grins at campy stuff like racing a MiG 17 against a jet powered car. I find this fascinating.
