Last weekend I was fortunate enough to shoot the Chino Air Show in Southern California. The show is usually this time of year and the skies are often hazy. This year, although it was very very hot, the skies were quite clear and led to some nice light.
It was nice to see the Raptor fly again after all of the US Demo teams were put on the shelf last year. There was a great variety of planes and many warbirds flew the regular show but not the practice. These are all from the practice on Friday.

I hope you enjoy.
