I hope some of you were able to attend the 2019 Virginia Beach Airshow, Warbirds Over the Beach.
Unlike last year, we had perfect weather this year!
In addition, the local FSDO granted permission to alter the old show line and we were able to fly down the tree line in front of the crowd.
Most aircraft except for the Me262 and Mosquito flew.
Many, many living history encampments, as well as our operational Flak 88 added to make this year the best ever Warbirds Over the Beach Show.
Anyone in the forum attend?

John

Been meaning to post some shots, just busy busy busy!  It was a great show this year, I heard the PBY caught a bug in the pitot tube on takeoff which is why it didn't go up.  Would love someday to see the 262 again!

Here's a few shots.  Flying ones are tough with the sun, but the take off and landing stuff is just killer, esp with the great natural background!

Wish I could have been there, but was otherwise engaged. It was pretty darn cool to see these guys flying over my house though!

Anyone coming out to see “Flying Proms” at the MAM tonight?
One of the best events of the year.
