The KC Air Show invaded our quiet neighborhood and rattled the windows as plane after plane buzzed our apartment building just across the river.
On Saturday we had the awful misfortune of witnessing the crash that killed a pilot after he lost control of his plane. On Sunday, though the show's pilots vowed to continue flying and kept to the air for an all-day spectacle.
We watched stunt planes, Russian Migs, Mustang fighters and an A-10 Warthog all buzz the rooftop of the Market Station apartments as we ate dips and drank away the afternoon.
The air show has a special place in my heart since it was the place, as a photographer, that I got this sweet photo when I tagged along with the U.S. Army Golden Knights when they did their arial parachute stunts:
The view was different this year, but amazing with the good people and good drinks.
