My favorite was a B1-B because it was my OTS graduation. This years SB was bust.
Better flyovers at air shows though. F-15s flyover and then pull up turning the afterburners at the crowds. I don't think they're allowed to do that at stadiums due to the sound levels.
Did you see that ground defense tried the F15s lol
Rockford air show many years ago - late 80's? - before Middle East wars
"Will all veterans please please assemble at gate #"
Decent size group show up - walk us out onto runway - "if you would please form a single line" - start playing national anthem - wife said she and some people around her had tears in their eyes by "land of the free / home of the brave"
Then this F-4 comes in from the side low ( I mean low) and slow - felt like right over us - gets past and immediately another one comes in from the other side - burners on - somewhat higher thankfully
Last time I went still did the flyover but no one on tarmac or that low on burners- probably got complaints about noise - Green Mamba at short track was louder and had more over pressure.
