WHAT'S IN THE SKYS ABOVE TUCSON?

IT'S A LONG STORY, BUT ON THE WAY TO AN ANTIQUE MALL, WE SPOTTED STRANGE AIRCRAFT OVER TUCSON. WE GAVE CHASE! WE CAUGHT UP WITH THEM.

IT TURNS OUT THAT DM AIRFORCE BASE OFFERS THE ONLY CERTIFICATION PROGRAM IN THE US THAT ALLOWS PRIVATELY OWNED VINTAGE AIRCRAFT TO FLY ALONG SIDE CURRENT US AIRFORCE PLANES FOR THE PURPOSE OF PARTICIPATING IN AIR SHOWS (AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT SOME GUY TOLD US.)I'VE GOT OTHER PHOTOS OF OTHER PLANES (ALL TOLD I TOOK ABOUT 400 SHOTS AND TRASHED ABOUT 250 OF THEM) LIKE F-15s AND A10s, BUT I MISSED THE F22 RAPTOR (WE WERE IN THE CAR CHASING THE PLANES-MONICA TOLD ME TO PULL OVER AND I SAID NAH, WE'LL GET ANOTHER SHOT. ENOUGH SAID, PLEASE.)ANYWAY, NOW YOU KNOW WHAT'S IN THE SKY OVER TUCSON, AT LEAST ON ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

we live in a great, interesting city. yes, I love and miss new york, but look at those planes flying near the catalinas...isn't that just great?

(and we have great antique stores, too....)

(and, ok, the pixel quality of that camera is superior. these are beautiful shots.)
