This one was gussied up in blue and polished aluminum...it'* for show, for sure.

There is a Warbird airshow in a few weeks, and I've seen a few of them come in to town already...including the Starfighter. There has also been a Mitchell to frequent the airport, as well as the 727 Vomit Comet.

That'* just too cool.

All we get around here is the daily sorties of F-16s, F-22s, a few A-10s & C-130s, a KC 135 or two, a smattering of F-15s, F-14s, F-18s, an occasional B-2 or F-117, C-17s, C-5s, and on rare occasions an SR-71 (been a while since being deactivated). Of course on air-show day we get a broad spectrum of vintage and new aircraft, but that'* not a daily occurance. A 104 would be cool to see!

Lunchboxx - sure does. But they can't connect IT to the 528 bypass, which is only about a mile and half away from the end of that extension
