These are my favorite pictures from the 1999 Barnes Air Show in Westfield. Despite the early haze each day, and the fact that the Friday practice was rained out, this show had the best weather of any of the major 99 New England air shows. Unfortunately, the haze did prevent me from getting any good aerial shots of demos done early in the day.
The picture on the left is of the B-1 as it arrived Friday afternoon.  The other shot is of the B-1 as it came out from behind some trees prior to it's demo. The P-51 is considered by many to be the premier World War 2 fighter plane.
The Heritage Flight is my favorite part of an air show. Mass ANG A-10s.
An F-16 from the An F-16 from the Vermont ANG Green Mountain Boys, Tornado, and RCAF Tutor arrive at Westfield. I can't stress enough how great a location I had for taking pictures at the Friday fly-in. Everything landed right in front of me, and then passed by even closer on the way to be parked as static displays.
I love this shot of the 5 and 6 in reverse formation. This isn't a great shot of the diamond formation, but I especially like the effect of the clouds in the background. The classic Thunderbird diamond formation. A view of the the bottom of the Thunderbird diamond.
