    That's pretty low in an urban area. I hope those guys know what they're doing.

    I dont care who you are, 6 or 60, even if you have BTDT, Jets are cool....a bunch of jets is even cooler.

    Fighters are a 10 times a day or better sight here in San Antonio. I look and smile most every time.

    Go to the roof and start yelling "Get off my lawn!!" at them.

    Let us know if any of them seem to get the reference.

    A few months ago I got to see the Blue Angels and much, much more, at the Andrews JAB Air Show.

    The Angels weren't the best part. No, the best part, by a looooong way, was the Raptor's show. Words cannot express the incredible performance of that plane, or the way it shakes the earth.

    In fact, the Angels show was ruined by a massively over-amplified show speaker system, with the B.A.s announcer doing his part of the show, with music. Just ruined their part of the show.....waaaaay to loud, painfully loud.

    A quick search of Blue Angels should bring that thread up, I posted a lot of pictures if anyone is interested.

    Yep. It is amazing watching groups like them. The only bad part is. The lead makes a error the rest are so dang close/so focased on lead....

    Living in the country, things here are slower and more laid back.

    We have several municipal and private airports around here. We get an occasional biplane or triplane buzzing low over our house.

    They make a very distinctive sound that always makes me run outside and look (except you can hear them coming, like, 15 minutes before they actually fly over). Sometimes they are so low the people in them will lean out and wave.
