Aviation Nation 2016: BOOM!

Here is a teaser for a series of posts coming up on my trip to Aviation Nation 2016 event at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada (November 12th and 13th). Another brilliant show and one that even after 2 days all seemed to end so fast, with never enough time to take in all the static and weapons displays due to all the aerial action (not a bad thing)! A combination of a historic Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star jet trainer known as “Ace Maker“, the powerful Smoke-N-Thunder Jetcar powered by a Westinghouse J34-48 jet engine (originally used in the North American Buckeye T-2A trainer) and a massive amount of pyrotechnics make for a stunning display during a jet vs jetcar race (the results seemed to have been 1 all after 2 days of the air show)!
