The business end of a Russian MiG fighter jet captured at the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Hanger just outside of Washignton D.C. 

I thought this would be an appropriate shot for today, given the fact that this Friday I’m headed back to Washington D.C. for the first of two back-to-back weekends there. I’m hoping to bring back some great photos again, which shouldn’t be hard since it is such a photogenic city.

Aeroshell Aerobatic Team

A pair of AT-6 Texans, from the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, taken at the Winston-Salem Airshow this past September. This was taken right after they lifted away from the runway, and if you look closely you can tell the landing gear isn’t even fully retracted yet.

Aero L-39 Albatros

Developed in Czechoslovakia, the Albatros is a jet trainer aircraft. Production began in 1997, and there were over 2,800 that have been produced and flown in over 30 countries. Build to accommodate a two man crew, the L-39 has a max speed of just over 450 mph, and a range of close to 700 miles.

The primary purpose of the L-39 Albatros is to be a jet trainer, and as such it is the most widely used jet in the world for that role. It has also been used for combat duties at various points of its manufacture, serving as a light-attack fighter.

This one sported some beautiful colors as it flew over the Winston-Salem Airshow this past September.

F-86 Sabre

Intended for a single pilot crew, the F-86 Sabre reached speeds of close to 700 MPH. It holds the distinction of being America’s first swept wing fighter, which allows it to maintain maneuverability, by delaying drag, for high speed aircraft.

The Sabre was a popular aircraft, developed in the late 1940’s. It had a production run that came close to reaching 10,000 planes.

Sikorsky UH-34D Seahorse

Designed as a medium transport helicopter, the Seahorse first took flight in 1954. Even though it is currently out of production, it is still being used in several civilian roles. It played wartime roles primarily in Vietnam, and throughout the years has served several roles, including search and rescue as well as VIP transport.

This one sits right outside of Washington D.C., in Chantilly Virginia, at the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Hanger.

Aeroshell Aerobatic Team

I posted one photo of the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, but I can’t stop myself from posting another. Their show was just a pleasure to watch, and the way these guys have their timing down is simply amazing.
