Heroes of the Skies
August 11, 2016
Hey everyone, this is really cool. This weekend is the Abbotsford Air Show, and it is called "Heroes of the Skies." Well, the whole thing is literally taking place RIGHT OVER MY HOUSE and the sights of these aircrafts have so far absolutely blown me away!

They are doing loop de loops, tricks, and I just saw six white jets fly together over my home. They are all practising and I literally have front row seats! I'm so excited about this. I have a love for planes, blimps and ships. I dunno why, really, but they fascinate me. They are all practising their flights right now, and I am getting the preshow.

Yesterday, a fighter jet was flying around in circles over our house and the whole place shook. At first I thought it was thunder until I saw this impressive military jet literally break the sound barrier! They are all flying really low so that people have the best views. I know it's going to be noisy and chaotic, but that's what earplugs are for.

Oh yea, and there will also be planes from the distant past as well.

This is going to be an AWESOME weekend! grinning smiley

Aw, thanks Mistress R! I wish you could be here. We would have a ball, watching the acrobatics and getting hammered.

ETA: Yesterday one of these babies flew over my house at extremely low altitude. It was impressive!
