Blue Angels Air Show, Meridian, MS, April 17, 2004
     Today, we picked up the Caldwells and went to Meridian Naval Air Station for the Blue Angels Air Show.  They had a great show with lots of old war birds, aerobatic performers and, of course, the Navy's Blue Angels.  One father/son team, from Canada (the father was 72 years old), put on an aerobatic show, doing all kinds of maneuvers, including outside loops with up to 3 negative Gs.  That old man must be made of steel.  I (Joe) hated negative Gs even when young.  We enjoyed the show and got lots of pictures.  Blue Angel pictures are by Harry Caldwell.  Joe's camera battery played out.  See pictures below.  Click picture for larger view.  Click 'Back' to return:
