OMG! What fantastic pictures. A wonderful collection of rare aircraft was at this airshow. I wish I could have been there. I didn't know that the movie version of the "Memphis Belle" was still flying around to airshows, and the pictures of the US Airways Express Dash 8 100 brought back a lot of memories. (I used to work on them as an A&P for Piedmont here in Jacksonville Florida until they closed the base here)
Also, I have the Great Planes version of Matt Chapmans' Cap 580 that I flew only this morning.

Thanks for posting these!


PS: I was born in Albany, NY, but have not lived there since 1970.

"Where we ya sitting Sat, Jim, me and the GF were directly in front of where the harrier, and the f-16s were."

We were not too far from you, just left of "show center" probably 50 feet back from the flightline.
