I went to the Lincoln air show this past Sunday. It was awesome! I hadn't been to an air show in quite some time, and this one was free, so I figured I might as well. Apparently, two hundred thousand other people thought they'd go as well. Despite the numbers, it didn't seem that crowded; there was lots of space. I didn't get a seat anywhere near the fence, but fortunately that only matters for the rocket truck event, which I barely caught anyway. So, I made camp towards the back where there weren't many people. After all, if the entertainment is overhead, it doesn't really matter where you sit.

I got to the air show just as the F-117 was ending its flight, so I didn't get any pictures of that. But I did get pictures of just about everything else! The Blue Angels had by far more photos than anything else. What can I say - they are awesome.

Not so awesome, however, is the process of leaving the air show. It took me no less than two hours to get out of the parking lot, and for the first hour and fifteen minutes I didn't move at all. It was pretty excruciating. But, I did eventually escape the mad house, and in retrospect, it was worth it.
