Memorial Day ~ The Airshow

Good morning, friends, on this first weekend of summer. As I rehang my wooden American flag in honor of Memorial Day, the skies are sadly empty and silent. Usually the Beach skies are  efilled with roar of the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds, as the performing military jets practice for the big Memorial airshow at a nearby state beach park.

Not this year. The show attracts hundreds of thousands of beach goers, and would not be safe or allowed.

Instead the two jet squads did a flyover in April, to honor the hospital workers on the virus frontlines. Enjoy the video, it is quite spectacular, especially to see the two ''rival'' crews fly together. Amazing cockpit filming too.. Please take a few moments to watch.

Remembering especially my dad, who made my flag---and who was an AF pilot.



gone to the beach....
