Seafair 2016: Boeing Air Show

It has been a busy aviation week in Seattle! I attended the Friday (sunny) and Sunday (from grey skies and low cloud to sunny!) Seafair Boeing Air Show which included the newAmazon One” Amazon Prime Air Boeing 767-300, a new Boeing 737 MAX, US Army and US Coast Guard helicopters, warbirds from the Flying Heritage Collection and Historic Flight Foundation, a Douglas TA-4 Skyhawk Ginny Girl“, USAF Reserve A-10 Thunderbolt II close support aircraft, aerobatic displays and of course the headlining US Navy Blue Angels (more on the Blues in my next post). I saw some great flying over Lake Washington from a higher vantage point over the I-90 Bridge (they close it for the Blue Angels display).

  1. Super job getting the props and rotors a bit blurred while keeping the aircraft from becoming barred as well. The show looks like it must have been a lot of fun.
