This year’s practice day for the 2011 Aviation Nation Air Show at Nellis Air Force Base came with horrible weather conditions for photos. Most of the day was gray and gloomy with a solid cloud deck, a high deck, but solid. Towards the end some blue skies peaked through, but hardly enough to make the photogs happy. Enjoy !      

Photos from flybys during the 2010 Aviation Nation air show. The Navy Legacy Flight was the last west coast flight to take place, the east coast will still be able to catch this flyby next year during the Navy’s 100 year of Naval Aviation celebration.

The F4 Phantom story is almost as sad as the F-14 Tomcat’s story, almost. The F4 was in service far longer, so being retired in 1996 should have come as no surprise, although it didn’t make many aviation fans happy either.
