Saturday Flying Squadron

There was plenty of activity at the Arlington airport today. I arrived just in time to watch 3 groups of planes taking off. I see these guys frequently but never have my camera ready to go.

1st Group

2nd Group

3rd Group

Just before I left the airport, I could see the squadron flying in formation far off in the distance.

I left the airport and headed over to Costco. Just as I pulled into the parking lot, the planes flew overhead, back in groups of 3, getting ready for landing.

It was fun to finally capture these pilots in action.

How cool! I can't think of the last time I've been to an air show. I wouldn't mind finding one to go to.

Great shots. :-)

Every group was in so neat order too. There must have been some control freak out there.

Great pictures you got of the planes. Nice work! My sis lived in Arlington before moving over the hill to Eastern WA. I'm down on the southern end of the state.
