Patuxent River Air Expo 2009

This past weekend was the 2009 Air Expo at Patuxent River NAS. I was joined this time by friends Greg, Jack, Alan and his son Christopher.

We had a perfect day!! The clouds were great and the light was spectacular. This year we purchased reserved seats that got us close to the flight line. Air shows are usually free, but paid seats are well worth the money.

New this year is the first female Blue Angels Pilot! Lt. Amy Tomlinson flies the #8 plane. While she is not part of the 6 plane show, I thought this was impressive nonetheless.

During the show I shot over 1500 exposures. I even managed to shoot a couple of handheld HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. I have spent the last 3 days going through images and deciding what to post. Overall I’m quite happy with the results.
