Alliance Air Show

October 30 and 31st was the Forth Worth Alliance Air Show, at the Alliance airport just north of the Fort Worth area.  We went on the 30th and enjoyed roaming the static displays while we waited for the aerial displays to start.  As always, the piloting was excellent and the planes were beautiful.  Here are just a few images from the day:

Once the planes started flying, this lovely B-26 Marauder took to the skies, pilot displaying a large amount of skill in handling the aircraft:

A little while earlier, an F-16 made a pass right alongside the moon, making for a very lucky shot for anyone with a fast shutter finger.

For a complete change in aircraft design, a MiG-17 set off on its own display, complete with plume of fire coming out the back of the aircraft (sorry, didn’t manage to catch that!):

FionaLorne Photography took more than just the four images here.  For more pictures of the static displays and the planes in flight, or to purchase a print of the planes, see the full album here.
