Stacked Deck

An image captured during the Blue Angels’ historic Charleston Harbor Air Show in April of 2010. Shot from the Fort Sumter Museum/SC Aquarium wharf. You could almost reach up and touch the craft as they flew overhead. Sunday’s air show had a different flight plan than Saturday’s. Note the numbering of the aircraft – 1, 2, 7, and 4. The #3 F-18 had to bug out and the two-seater #7 stepped in. The team spent much time buzzing the V.I.P. guests seated on the second story of Carolina Belle Historic Harbor Tour building. The wharf where I was located was a prime spot for some spectacular shots and viewing of a great show on a perfect day.
