    Default Cocoa Beach Airshow

    This past weekend Tom and I were invited to join our daughter and son-in-law at the Cocoa Beach Airshow. I have never attended a airshow at the beach. It was a cool experience. Here are some highlights...

    Great photos Pat.
    There is also another air show a little further south at Melbourne Air port May 15th. I work right near the air port and see/hear them buzz our building during that week... it's a blast

    We used to have a Navy air base and an Airforce base, as well as the Confederate Airforce here in KC so we were treated to some pretty awesome shows. A-10's making strafing and bombing runs along with the B-1, helicopter attacks and WW2 fighter races. The P-38 came from behind and won every time, lol... Since they closed the bases it's not the same. A few years ago we didn't even have the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds, but rather the Canadian Snowbirds. They were nice to watch but pretty laid back and not nearly as intense as the others. The Coco Beach show looks awesome!
