The Geico Skywriters
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner
 
The Geico Skytypers
The Geico Skytypers
Category: EOD

I went to my first Air Show Saturday and loved it! This is the Geico Skytypers, what an awesome performance! This shot was taken at the Smyrna Air Show in Smyrna, TN. It was cold Saturday, the temperture was in the 50's with 20-30mph winds. Burrr! Despite the high winds and uncomfortable temperature, the sky was perfect for an Air Show!

Thanks so much everyone! I had to repost this one, I had to correct something. I also changed the title, it was the SKYTYPERS, not Skywriters! Sorry for the error!
