Due to other commitments and general dislike for things that are not more girlish only Owen and I attended the Joint Service Open House Andrews 2010 Air Show! We had a great time (minus the sunburn, the waiting in line for the return bus trip to the Fedex Field parking, the being on a runway with no shade on a sunny day and the lack of ear plugs).
We parked at Fedex Field (not the best directing of traffic getting into the parking area) where we hitched a ride on a big yellow school bus to the base.
We made it to the designated spot for out troop picture only to find that there was one other person and their three kids – oh well, thats not the only reason we went.
Owen had fun being able to climb into real life attack helicopters and walk through cargo planes and watching the Golden Knights jump out of an airplane and land right on the X that they were trying to get too. The Blue Angels were pretty neat to watch too – very loud and if you were not watching the would sneak up on you and scare you as they did low level fly-bys.
The F-22 raptor was amazing to watch and the Apache helicopters as well.
