An Aerial Circus



     This past spring I was privileged to accompany my eldest son on a field trip to Andrews Airforce Base just outside Washington, D.C.  The field trip was to see their annual air show, a thrilling combination of demonstration of skills and breathtaking stunts performed in mid air.  It was a beautiful day providing the perfect backdrop for an exciting performance that kept us on the edge of seats with pounding pulse from time to time.  The show featuring the Blue Angels was fantastic.  Trails of exhaust from the jets as they performed hair raising stunts added interesting white curlicues to an azure sky.  The only downside to a wonderful day was the heat which was almost unbearable by early afternoon. Other amazing sky scenes may be found on Skywatch Friday.
