Arrival and Practice Day, Wings over Pittsburgh, 9-SEPT-11
Despite some borderline dismal weather condoitions, we got to see some practice flying and arrivals today:
High-speed pass by Art Nalls in his Sea Harrier
C-17 demonstration - I believe another Globemaster arrived also.
Not airshow-related - VH-60N of HMX-1 arrives; no doubt transporation for the President when he arrives on Sunday for 9/11 commemorations at Shanksville.
At least two CH-46s landed - I assume these were probably also HMX-1 birds. Wouldn't mind seeing a Frog on static though - it's been years....
Viper West demo landing
One of the "local" KC-135Ts of the 171st ARW landing just ahead of the B-52.
KC-135 walk around
The mighty BUFF arrives from Barksdale.
Massive C-5 Galaxy arriving from West Virginia.
Thanks for visiting!
