    I hate air shows. At least I hate close formation flying. Have ever since two Italian planes crashed during an airshow years ago. Close formation makes me extremely nervous. I don't see the need for it. Wonder why the US air force participates.

    Thanks for posting that @Frank Sanoica ! I didn't know they were doing a souped up Hercules. We used to have the Hercs fly over on a daily basis here, but they have switched them out for C-141s now and the C-130s have gone to the National Guard and Coast Guard. We are in the flight path between Eielson and Elmendorf, so we see all kinds of stuff fly over.
