Stuart Air Show

While the weekend was cloudy, it was still nice weather for spectators to take advantage of the annual Stuart Air Show at Witham Field. The partly cloudy skies provided just the right backdrop for the spectacular display of aerial prowess by daring pilots in modern as well as vintage aircraft. There was a full scale WWII battle reenactment including a parachute drop. Demonstrations by the Air Force F16 Fighting Falcon, the Navy F18 Hornet and a vintage Mig 17 supersonic fighter jets, as well as a variety of other aerobatic  demonstrations, including the Navy Leap Frogs parachute jump with the American flag.   Disappointingly, the ever popular AeroShell Aerobic team did not make it this year. I tried using a new 55-300mm Nikkor lens this year - but think I prefer my old versatile 18-200mm to capture a wider view and more of the action.
