Air Show pics - Saturday

The Blue Angels came to town (Huntsville, AL) this past weekend and we heard em buzzing our office most of second half of the week. So I got the itch to take the family. Wife, son, and I went to the air show here on Saturday, before events on Sunday turned ugly. More on that in a minute...

Here are a few pics I took. I was back a bit, and not using a DSLR, but a little point'n shoot Nikon Coolpix 5700.















Given the lighting conditions, I'm happy with some of my pics, but a DSLR would have made things a LOT better...

The tragedy came in on Sunday. A microburst occurred over the airport, causing VERY high winds to tear apart 3 of the VIP tents for corporate sponsors. My daughter and her bf were in one of those tents. In particular she was in the tent that housed a generator for A/C and power. It fell, killing a 5 year old boy, and she was only about 20' away or so when it happened. She was hit by a flying table and it bruised her hip/leg pretty good to the point her leg was extremely stiff. Fortunately emergency staff helped her quick and get her on her way home instead of requiring a hospital visit.

I can only imagine how the parents of that boy feel. He was with his dad when that generator fell, and the dad was hurt pretty good, but nothing life threatening.

Daughter is fine, just a bit sore. Kinda upset about the boy, but that is totally understandable.
