This year, parade organizers added an aerial element that included four flyovers. The first was by a bunch of local helicopters. The second was two A-10 Warthog gunfighter jets from Mountain Home AFB. The third was the thunderous roar of three radial engine WWII planes: two AT-7 trainers and one of the few flyable TBM Avengers torpedo bombers left alive in the sky. The fourth was a tandem appearance by two F-15's from Boise. WOW! The Avenger actually flew low right over our house.
We could take a ba-zillion photos of this parade and no scratch the surface of all the things to see and savor. Here's just a few scenes for your viewing pleasure. Next up: The Liberty Festival downtown on the Greenbelt. Many Cheers, jp (There are a few comments between some of the photos below.)
I took a telephoto of this group but wouldn't you know Miss Susun could get the Star Couple to pose?
OK, above is Miss Susun getting a float full of baseball players to smile. She's pulling her "eagle" trick. Below is what she saw through her lens when she captured this great shot. What a ham!
