This past weekend the Visiting Nurses Association once again welcomed sponsors to the annual Stuart Air Show. About a dozen non-profit organizations are the financial beneficiaries who thrive because of this ever growing 3 day event in Martin County, FL.

Good morning Kevin. Some great shots here. I have a framed thing in my antique booth that is like this.

It was virtually non-stop action from the moment we got there. An F-15 fly by from behind got our attention real quick. I would so hate to be on the receiving end of our military. We had a blast!

I am curious as to what the make and model is of that second airplane.

I believe it's a 1958 Lockheed Jet Star VC-140 Joe. They called it the Cadillac of private jets in its day. Something like 8 Presidents used them for shorter legs or runways. When they were aboard it was called Air Force One but LBJ jokingly called it Air Force One Half. It was / is  no slouch and can cruise at almost 600 mph.  Elvis Pressley also owned one, a C-140 which is not the military version. Being very expensive to maintain was its major downfall.

Kevin, I always loved Air Shows and the first one I saw was in the late 1960's when the Blue Angels did a show in Bridgeport CT:))Endre

We've been enjoying this one for 28 years. Watching how much it has grown is always the highlight.
