Jones Beach Air Show: Part 2

Every time I go to an air show and see an F-16 (left), I can't help but think of that great 1986 classic, Iron Eagle (right). I wonder if the pilots ever joke around and call each other "Chappy". Did you know they made Iron Eagle 2, 3, and 4? What a shame, Chappy (Louis Gossett Jr.) was in each one of them.

Back to the Air Show. Besides The Blue Angels, there was also an F-15, some WWII aircraft, The Red Baron Stunt Team, an F-16, an A-10, the US Army Parachute team, and a mock sea rescue by the NY National Guard. Check out these pictures and then look at the videos below.
