Tom, Motorpool: "Thanks, I had Fun!"

Two weeks ago, Kevin (coworker) let us know that he needed two people to help out at the Wings Over Houston Airshow on Sunday. A couple days later he came back with hats, tickets, and a parking pass. Next thing I know, I’m waking up at 4 AM on Sunday to get ready and head way down to Ellington Field after picking up Cory (another coworker).

I had no idea what to expect, but it was a ton of fun. We got radios! The only thing I’ve played with are the pair of radios we bought back in the day with maximum range of one end of the house to the other, lol.

Anyway, we got the opportunity to move people from the the parking lots to their tents. These weren’t ordinary people, they were the in the Heroes and Legends booth. I even took a Congressman there who went to make an appearance there.

TORA! TORA! TORA! MMM....Apaches. TORA! TORA! TORA! B-24. B-17.
C-17. ummm....a single prop. Thunderbirds. Thunderbirds - NSEW. Thunderbirds - NSEW+Corkscrew.
Thunderbirds - Damn Close Formation. Thunderbirds - Flying LOW.

(Sorry for the crappy pictures. I just snapped them from my phone. Next year, I’ll take out my RebelXT.)
