2014 NAS Jacksonville Air Show

Blue Angels diamond formation
     After seeing the US Air Force Thunderbirds a few weeks ago at the Wings & Waves Air Show, I just had see the US Navy Blue Angels, and the F-22 Raptor perform this weekend at the NAS Jacksonville Air Show.  Early Saturday morning I made the trip to Jacksonville Naval Air Station with my Cousin, who just happens to be an air show expert. We were armed with an HD video camera, a digital 15x optical zoom point-and-shoot camera, and a digital SLR camera with telephoto lens. Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have already gotten a preview of some of the cell phone pictures & videos I took during the air show. Here are some of the better photos & videos we took at the 2014 NAS Jax Air Show... Enjoy!

What a great air show!  The Jacksonville Naval Air Station Air Show is FREE, and open to the public, so bring the family out to the air show next time it's in town. It's fun for all ages. Don't forget to bring your cameras, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and folding chairs. Preferred Seating at air show center on the flight line can be purchased for $10/person if you want to get up close to the action. There are plenty of vendors selling food, drinks, beer, and souvenirs at reasonable prices. Jumbo hot dogs were $3, burgers and pulled pork sandwiches $4, Sodas $2 for 20oz. bottles of Coke products, and Budweiser & Bud Light 16oz drafts for $4.  I can't think of a better way to enjoy a Saturday.  I had a great time watching the Blue Angels, the F-22 Raptor, The Immortals, and others perform.
