Wings Over Houston 2016

Last weekend I attended the Wings Over Houston airshow at Ellington airport. This is the second time I’ve gone to this airshow, and I have to say, it’s awesome! It’s great to see aviation enthusiasts gather together for a special event such as this one. They had static displays as well as airshows. My absolute favorite was when the Blue Angels performed in their F/A-18s.

U.S. Coast Guard HC-130H nose. Fun fact: I asked one of the pilots at the C-130 display and they said the nose is shaped how it is for de-icing purposes. They shoot out de-icing fluid out of the tip of the nose. The camera mounted on the bottom of the nose is an infrared camera.

This was also one of my favorites. Attack on Pearl Harbor reenactment.

Pretty sure there’s one hiding in the picture of the F-16. Other than that, I have no pictures of it.

My wife and I were planning to go out to Ellington Field on Sunday but she was sick all weekend :(

Loooks like a great time! I’ve seen the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds perform and much prefer the Blue Angels show.
