There was a biannual air show at the air force base two miles from where I live and I got the pleasure to see the practice show from my backyard. I didn’t go to the actual show though because I couldn’t get in. It was too crowded. My mom’s friends drove by and they said the line was all the way to the freeway exit. So I only have the practice show pictures which I think it’s even better because I think the rehearsal is sometimes better than the actual show.
This was made by four different planes. I was so focused on snapping pictures that I didn’t catch how they did that. I did see the planes that separated at the top took a loop around the neighborhood before making another circle-like pattern in the sky.
It turned out, the four planes were a diversion for this plane, the fifth plane which shot out of the sky from nowhere. I can see the actual plane in this photo.
