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!
