This weekend we took three of the ALS aircraft to Randolph AFB for the annual San Antonio military airshow. Here are a few shots of our formation flight over:












Headed down...


One more turn on the way down...


Coming off of an S-turn for spacing before lining up to land.

Formation looks good, but why is the fast plane tailend Charlie and the slow plane in the lead? Air base shows are my favorites, they always take good care of you when you do a base show.

Fast plane is tail-end charlie because it's easier for me to keep up in a turn that way. Also, since I'm the newest, most rookie guy, I can catch up if I need to get out for spacing and safety.

Just giving you grief.
The -2, -5 and stearman usually run off and leave me in the L-4 on the way home from fly-overs.
How many (no longer active duty) military planes did they have doing static display at Randolph? Did you guy stay over or just go in the day of the show?

I didn't really get a count. Stayed fairly close to our aircraft it being also close the "Bud Light Lounge" That's not my idea of a good place for fabric covered aircraft, but thankfully the Randolph crowd seems a lot less belligerent than the Kelly crowd.
We went in the night before. The other two guys pulled out on Saturday night due to the forecast, and I left the plane on static yesterday while I went to church meeting. Wish I'd pulled out Saturday, too, because of the rain. Anyway, the plane survived and we flew it home this evening.
