Thanks, y'all. Max, that is a Canadian forces CF-18. It came with the Snowbirds, and they put on a good show. She is a really pretty bird, wish I had a camera that captured the photo passes.

Sorry Blacksheep, it came down with the birds. They still have the trainers.

Nice!

"Juliet Tango" was the first Corsair I ever saw (outside of a museum!).

Here's a shot from "Corsair row"...Thunder Over Michigan...several years ago...

Hey, Missippy! Which airport was the show held at? I used to live near the General DeWitt Spain airport on the north-west corner of Memphis. Was it there, or in Millington?

It was at Millington, at the old naval air station. It's a municipal airport now.

Yeah, that's what I've heard. I understand it also houses a regional IRS processing center, too, and a Naval Reserve unit as well. The last air show I attended there was probably 25 years ago. Fifi and Diamond Lil were on hand. Thunderbirds, too, if I remember correctly.
