I recently attended an airshow that took place close to where I live. I live very close to an Air Force Base, Lockheed Martin Jet manufacturer and Bell Helicopter.
Lockheed Martin currently manufactures the F-35 Lighting jet and did manufactured the F-22 Raptor until 2011. The F-22 production was stopped early by U.S. budget cuts. The U.S. plan was to manufacture many more F-22s. Just for comparison Lockheed Martin is building more than 3000 F-35s. Because of a VIP pass I was able to arrive before Sunrise and before all of the thousands of spectators arrived for the air show.
I have a 100% Veteran's disability from the Viet Nam era but I'm not tied to the military in any way I just live in a very noisy neighborhood. This project is being posted on America's Veterans Day.
Due to the circumstances had to move rather quickly to get these photos. I will most likely post some more photos of the air show.
