Welcome back to part 2 of Wings Over North Georgia Airshow photos. Due to me being a big brain, I have posted my pictures backwards, with part 1 containing my final photos, while this part contains my first couple of photos. It was pretty cloudy out and it was early, so many of these shots are dark. However, I do plan to edit all of these photos in the future. Hope you enjoy!!
Blue Angels Super Hornet #6 parked on the runway as the airshow begins at 9:30am.
The Full Throttle Airshow Team in their kit built Van RV aircraft pass overhead in their “stingray” formation.
A C-130H Hercules from Dobbins AFB banks, exposing its underbelly to the crowd.
A Georgia State Patrol Bell 407 hovers in the air as another helicopter out of frame unloads SWAT officers via the helicopter rope suspension technique.
A USAF C-17 Globemaster III taxis to the runway as it gets ready to take off with the parachute team, Black Daggers. However, this jump was later cancelled due to poor visability.
The same C-17 taking off.
Jerry “Jive” Kerby’s T-28 Trojan, called Mad Dog, takes to the skies with some aerobatic maneuvers.
An A-10 from the USAF Demo Team taxis back to its parking after showing off some combat maneuvers and capabilities.
Micheal Wiskus in his Lucas Oil Pitts S-1-11B in his final airshow appearance. He was probably the best one out there, and had an amazing end for his 40+ year flying career.
Finally, Scott Yoak in his P-51D Mustang known as “Quick Silver” does a quick fly-by. I must say, that engine was music to my ears. He spent 13 years restoring this P-51D to flying condition, and he did an amazing job!
Well, that’s all for the Wings Over North Georgia Airshow. I hope you enjoyed these photos both in part 1 and part 2.
