Retrospective – The Thunderbirds at the 2010 Rhode Island Airshow

As part of my airshow photoblog series, I’d like to look back at the Rhode Island National Guard Airshow in 2010. The airshow consisted of static and aerial displays. The main attraction was the USAF Air Demonstration Squadron (Thunderbirds). The Thunderbirds were formed in the 1950s and their first aircraft was the F-84G Thunderjet. Since then the Thunderbirds have flown several types of aircraft including the F-84F Thunderstreak, F-100C Super Sabre, F-105B Thunderchief, F-4E Phantom II, and the T-38A Talon. Their current aircraft is the F-16 Fighting Falcon, which the team has used since the 1980s. Hope you like the photos.

Retrospective – The 2013 Paris Airshow

I know planes are not sportscars, but they do have things in common, such as engines, exhausts, wheels, wings, and they make a lot of noise and go fast!  That connection was enough for me to start writing a series of photo blogs on airshows I’ve been to over the years, whilst waiting for my motorsport photography season to start. Before getting into motorsports photography, airshows were one of my major interests in my spare time. The first story of the series is on the Paris Airshow from a couple of years ago. Hope you like the photos.
