Giants above the prairie. C-17 Globemaster III from Charleston AFB. Getting ready for launch this morning once the fog lifted. These guys waited out Hurricane Florence this past week.

The Thunderbirds perform a line abreast pass for the #thrust_thursday #dailythemetag as called by @robertgriffithsphotography. Taken at the 2018 Thunder Over Michigan #thunderovermichigan2018

Texas Raiders in the house. This Boeing B-17G looked sharp despite the overcast sky. #thunderovermichigan2018

This P-61C sits in the Steven F. Udzar-Hazy Center in Chantilly in her NACA (National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics) colors. NACA was formed in 1915 and became part of NASA in 1958. So it's appropriate for @rescuemedic6 call for #aerospace_monday #dailythemetag.

Another stormy morning shot taken of Hairless Joe, a C-47D Skytrain. The original Hairless Joe was flown by Lt Col Dick Cole, who was Jimmie Doolittle's co-pilot on the famous Tokyo Raid. Colonel Cole was flying with the 319th Troop Carrier Sqd, 1st Air Commando Group. @thunderovermichiganairshow

North American P-51D Mustang and the Lockheed F-22 Raptor are a comparison of size difference for air superiority fighter aircraft. This is submitted to @windlandphotography for his #size_matters_sunday #dailythemetag. This was taken at the 2018 Dayton Vectren Airshow.

The CAF Dixie Wing's FG-1G thrilled the crowds at @thunderovermichiganairshow .

A late add to #on_finals_tuesday #dailythemetag for @carlwrightson. The Yankee Warrior on short final at the 2018 Thunder Over Michigan.

The CAF B-17G Texas Raider, is one of the last 20 built by Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, CA. Beautifully painted, she pleased the crowds at @yankee_air_museum #thunderovermichigan .

The Yankee Lady B-17G was the one of the stars at the Thunder Over Michigan this past weekend. The overcast and rain ran havoc with the flight program but we got some air time. #thunderovermichigan #yankeeairmuseum

The Hunt. Looking for some Thunderbirds in the Reflection Pass. @thunderovermichiganairshow @afthunderbirds @thunderovermichigan

The fact that I can drive a couple of main battle tanks on the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III makes her a candidate for #megaplanemondays #dailythemetag as called by @victor_juliet_aeroimaging.

My last post tonight for #aviation_sunday #dailythemetag. The Heritage Flight at the Vectren Dayton Airshow Dayton Airshow this year put the famous P-51 Mustang together with today's US air superiority fighter, F-22 Raptor. That's an amazing spectrum of aviation history and technology. Please welcome @victor_juliet_aeroimaging Vijay, who will carry the baton for Monday. Check out his aviation portfolio for some jewels. I know Vijay will come up with a great theme. Thanks everyone for sharing today ( you still have some time).

Vintage #bnw look of Georgie's Gal, a B-25J Mitchell medium bomber of Doolittle's Tokyo Raiders fame. Taken last year at Oshkosh, we will submit to the #aviation_sunday #dailythemetag.

America' top Ace, Maj Richard I. Bong was flying this Lockheed P-38J in 1945 at Wright Field, Ohio, when the right engine blew and he made an emergency landing. All through combat Maj Bong never suffered a mechanical failure. Ironic. 🤔

The Blakesnakes of the Ft Wayne Indiana ANG. Don't get bit by this Warthog. @ekinstagram #warthog_wednesday #dailythemetag Taken at the 2017 EAA AirVenture.

Warthog love as shown at the 2018 Dayton Airshow is submitted to @ekinstagram for his #warthog_wednesday #dailythemetag. Gotta love the dents on the nose. This A-10 belongs to the Flying Tigers of the legacy from Gen Chenault in the China-Burma-india fame.

Wouldn't you kill to be that guy. The Boeing B-29 Super Fortress FIFI, one of two flight worthy B-29 aircraft. @gravity.images #b_something_saturday #dailythemetag. This shot was taken last summer.

Heavy lifter, the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III on short approach. Introduced in 1995 she will be carrying our troops and equipment for many years to come.
