Wings over Long Beach is an airshow here in the LBC once a year, sadly no flybys but it's still neat. I never had a chance to make it down there during the show (Mark did, check out his blog to see a few pix..)
BUT I did make it over to the airport monday morning to see something I have never seen, the B-52 Stratofortress, and don't forget the B-52's were first commisioned by the Air Force in 1955!!!
on the tarmac
and then take off! the fucker is MASSIVE!!!!
and other stuff...
and over across the tarmac, a B-1A in LB for servicing.
I was in a Boeing parkig lot, makes me happy that so many Boeing employees were out there waiting to see it take off! There were over a hundred people out there waiting to see it fly and most of them were Boeing employees. Good to see that to some people a job isn't just a job...
