Here's a selection of the best of almost 3000 pictures I took yesterday at the Wings Over Houston Airshow. All where taken with a Nikon D3100 with a 51-200 Nikon Telephoto. The only thing done to the images is cropping. FYI the Zero in the fourth picture is not a "movie" Zero...It is an actual Zero from world war 2...very rare.
I live in clear lake and watched from my house. I saw that zeeke fly over at about 1k' but didn't realize it was a real one. Great pics.. Thanks for sharing.
Some great pics there, love to see the old war birds still flying. The Phantom really brings memories; still have the scars from the many Phantom bites when I was still in aircraft maintenance.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

WHAT! No B-52?
I'm glad there are some people with enough money to keep those WWII aircraft in flying condition. Nothing like the sound of a radial engine roaring by.

Raising children is like being pecked to death by a chicken every day.
Nice photos, enjoyed looking at them.

I was there Sunday. Good show but last years was better. I really missed the Heavy Metal (now) Black Diamond Jet Team. They are sensational. Blue Angels were great!
I was in Deer Park for my daughters tennis tournament. The planes kept buzzing the tennis courts at low level. I guess we were in the flight path for something. Every time a plane flew over, the entire group of high school kids stopped playing to watch the planes go by. Needless to say it was pretty cool and it took forever to finish the tennis matches.

Thanks for sharing...
I'm about to go get my private pilot license "current" (it's been >10 years). I need some instruction, and my BFR, and I gotta get my physical. As soon as I heal up from this rotator cuff surgery...
I do so look forward to flying again...
It could be worse!
