Late in the 2008 show which featured the U.S. Navy's famed Blue Angel Flight Demonstration Team, when people were departing, this amazing formation came roaring by. The Patriots FSD were escorting a privately owned (FRY's Electronics) Boeing 747 during several passes over the field; the 747 was as low as 30 feet above the runway at 275 knots!! One performance, one show, I'll never forget!

The destruction along the Mississippi coast on August 29, 2005, looks much like this picture all along the 80 mile coastline. It was simply incredible. This picture is just a couple of blocks away from the beach, near the Armed Forces Retirement Home, where I lived.
