A little of the Newport area scenery.  Here you can see some of the "cottages" in Newport's high rent district. A close-up of Red Baron #4.  These are really beautiful aircraft. Red Baron #4 with the Newport Bridge in the background.
After a few minutes of formation flying we had a chance to experience a little bit of what the Red Barons do in their show.  Here you can see a pair of photographs from within a formation loop.  After the loop we broke formation and performed a roll and hammerhead stall.  I wanted to try some more aerobatics, but I think Travis was a little air-sick, so we formed up with the other aircraft and flew back to Quonset Point...
The Blue Angels were the feature performers for this show.
F-15s from the MA National Guard performed a few fly-bys. A 2-seat F-16 of the Lone Star Gunfighters arrives in RI. A C-17 Globemaster arrives.  This is the Air Force's newest transport aircraft.
