So, last December or January, I was approached with a request to volunteer at the upcoming Air Festival in May.

"Why Sure!", sez I, "That ought to be a hoot!" (with enthusiasm helped along by visions of blue skys and green grass dancing around in my winter brain).  

Then, I blinked, and Airshow Weekend was in my face like a freight train.  The Blue Angels were coming to town, and I heard myself ADDITIONALLY volunteering away my Friday to help set things up for a reception and dinner next to the courthouse in town.

I paid dearly the next morning after helping haul chairs and tables out of a box truck, then putting it all back in late in the night.  The dawn was rough...in addition to the normal back-popping and groaning as assorted vertebra broke loose for the day, neck muscles and ankles had me knocking down ibuprofen with my Folgers.  It's no wonder that roadies are dopers...

But enough whining.  Following is an assortment of photos...I KNOW the banquet tent photos are boring, but please look at them anyways, as they happened at considerable cost to my old carcass!

Many of the others are "standard airshow photos", but a few are fairly nice.  I raided my Mad Money Account to buy a ride in the two-seat P-40, but felt like crap and didn't want to take a chance of puking on the inside of it's beautiful canopy.  Maybe next time.  My buddy Fran got a ride in the Warhawk, and I'm surely gonna hear all about it.

:flyplane:Kim, are you sure you’re not a professional photographer? Those are some super great shots you taken. The Jet Truck blasting flames with the inverted Bipe  laying down chem trails awesome, also the slinky vapor trails off the P40 is one to be framed and hung on the wall. I feel your pain in the back after seeing those tents, tables and chairs. You don’t know the work that goes into a set-up like that until you’ve done it yourself, with friends and family. “Many hands make the load lighter” is a nice saying but still my back aches nowdays at even a little  lite lifting. Too bad you missed the P40, but you’re correct in your decision to not go up sick. That would’ve made a bad memory......remember the time I sprayed chunks all over in inside of a rare WarBird! Boy, I bet that pilot remembers me! HA! Thanks for having the intestinal fortitude to stay and take pictures of a wonderful day at the Airshow!  I enjoyed them very much.

Thanks guys! It was a good time, and now, the prep begins for S.M.A.L.L. Hopefully, this load-out won't have me popping pills!
