Blast off! (8/30-9/01)

As the "official" summer season draw to a close, the Labor Day Weekend would not be complete without catching a glimpse of jets, planes and more jets! The swoosh and whirl of the engines, is enough to tingle the spine of all; from wee ones to us adults.

This weekend, Cleveland will host the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as headliners of the 2008 Cleveland National Air Show at Burke Lakefront Airport. Each show day, the six "Blues" demonstration pilots will thrill air show fans with a one hour choreographed presentation that includes the graceful aerobatics of the four plane Diamond Formation, exciting high energy maneuvers by the two solo pilots and a JATO demonstration by the Blue Angles C-130 Hercules support aircraft affectionately known as "Fat Albert".

Last year a friend of ours took us out on his boat and it was insane! I swear you could reach out and touch the planes themselves. Get there early for the perfect bleacher seats...or if you'd like, ride your bike to a high hill overlooking downtown, relax and avoid the crowds all together. Whichever way you choose to see the show, I hope it sends tingles down your spine...

I just ran home to grab some lunch...chicken salad with avocado! The blue angels are already practicing...they were right over my house! I swear if I climbed my back tree I could touch them, my whole body shivered from the loud noise and vibrations. Lots of shivers. :)
