thunderbirds

Well, as I mentioned the other day, the USAF Thunderbirds came to TAMU today. The show was pretty awesome. I took pictures of them a couple times: coming in and landing, the practice session, the Thunderbirds parked at night, and the actual show.

I think the practice session was a little better than the actual performance — the weather was completely clear during practice but we had low cloud cover during the actual performance. (The clouds were probably around 1000' AGL, while the hard deck for the flight was just 150' AGL. It was still a good show though — I hadn't seen the Thunderbirds before, but had seen the Blue Angels before at the Wings Over Houston airshow several years ago. I can't really compare them since I didn't get to see the Thunderbirds do most of their high-altitude tricks, but it's not every day an acrobatic group comes to TAMU.

another week bites the dust

… and another week goes by the wayside. This week was pretty busy and crappy. Test in my RF Circuit Analysis class, test in my Digital Transmission and Switching class… I'm ready to be done with school once and for all.

In other exciting news, the USAF Thunderbirds will be in town to perform at the Air Power Conference being held here at TAMU. I've got a class during the time they'll be performing on Thursday, but our prof has given us a walk so we can all go see them perform. It should be awesome, and I'll have the camera ready.
