One thing you feel at the Tico Air Show is immense patriotism. Talking to former pilots that are stationed by the air planes that they flew makes you proud of all of the brave men and women who served our country and continue to serve today.
There were a lot of beautiful old cars displayed and I could have spent hours photographing them but the show was about airplanes.
We arrived around 2:30 in the afternoon and this was the last acrobatic pilot before the Thunderbirds. The next 2 pictures are of the same plane.
And now it is time to introduce the Thunderbirds.
What a thrill it is to see these beautiful planes enter the airspace above you. The following shots feature the Thunderbirds in action.
Even this great flying team needs to practice to make their stunts perfect. Here they are a little out of sync, but fortunately they had time later to practice and get their timing down.
