Carole & Bonnie

Today we went to Joint Base San Antonio Air Show at Randolph AFB. It is about an hour drive from here to the base. We arrived and poked around awhile waiting for Carole and Avery to arrive from Austin. As it turned out we left Buster before they left home. Texting we advised them where we will be “hanging out” making it easy for them to find us. All parking was on the east side and we were bused to the display area.
Avery waiting our turn

Logistic transport aircraft a big part of the mission of this base with displays of tanker and equipment aircraft. C 5 was one of the displays showing the capable capacity volume of the aircraft, or the drive thru aspect when the nose and tail doors are open. With the nose open on the big aircraft and it is sticking up high in the sky so we advised them we were under the left wing. Easy to find as the biggest thing is sticking up in the air.
Avery at the controls of the KC 10 Tanker

We toured that aircraft and the KC 10 tanker aircraft parked behind then walked west thru the other displays of aircraft and support operations. Getting tired and with no place to sit we headed back to Tan Jan to await the final air show flying display The Thunderbird's aerial precision flying team performed. Earlier there were WW II aircraft flying demonstrations and other aircraft flying. Both cars left the parking area together headed our own directions.
