It was a really nice treat to catch the US Navy Centennial of Naval Aviation T-6A at the Alliance airshow this year. I had been chasing this one since 2011 when it didn’t travel to North Island with the rest of the paint schemes.
Today is day 27 of @kjdphoto1971s#0318planes challenge! The theme is Break Now. • • Heres the diamond executing the barrel roll break at the Fort Worth Alliance Air Show last year. BA1 and BA4 both exit forward, each splitting a little left and a little right, respectively, while BA3 splits 90° left and BA2 splits 90° right, and they all re-form behind the crowd. • • I love this picture because it has all of the diamond, but theyre all at different roll angles and are about to exit the shot. You can almost feel the Gs coming on!
Today is day 15 of @kjdphoto1971s#0318planes challenge! Todays theme is Topside Pass. • • Heres a bit of a different take on the theme, David Martin inverted in his Baron with both engines feathered over the Fort Worth Alliance Air Show. Its a bit eerie to see a multiengine aircraft in an aerobatic demonstration and hear nothing but the wind whistling past the airframe.
Its day 14 of @kjdphoto1971s#0318planes challenge! Todays theme is Aircrew! • • Here are the men behind the aircrew, working to get the crowd hyped up before the Blues performance at the Alliance Air Show! • • These men work around the clock, putting in countless hours to keep the jets in peak condition so they can wow crowds across the US.
Battle of Britain formation. An utterly insane formation flying display with multiple planes flying different patterns to showcase the #battleofBritain at #allianceairshow The picture doesnt do justice frankly.
Today is day 12 of @kjdphoto1971s#0318planes challenge! • • Todays theme is Smoke On, Go! Heres Michael Goulian tumbling his way upwards on a column of smoke at the Fort Worth Alliance Air Show in 2017.
Day 6 of @kjdphoto1971s#0318planes challenge! • • Todays theme is Going Up, and heres Mike Goulian doing just that in his Extra 330SC over the Alliance Airshow. • • With a Lycoming AEIO-540 pulling only 1,389 pounds of airplane, the Extra 330SC is more than capable of going up, and quickly at that! • • #stoppropstopping
