Pics from Joint Service Open House Airshow at Andrews Airforce Base

Hey All,

This past Saturday I went to the Joint Service Open House Airshow at Andrews Airforce Base. I took along a young man that I mentor. He had never seen jets (or any aerobatic planes) fly and we had a great day.

Here are some pics from the day-

Are those flaps on the first pic of Sean Tucker's new Challenger? They are inboard of the ailerons. Are they flaps or secondary ailerons. Interesting, I have never seen anything like that before on a bipe.

Travis,

He has 8 ailerons on the biplane..which is a one of a kind design. I can't explain the mechanics behind it but fortunately I found this clip:

He was the same way in person..very nice and cordial...and certainly not uptight. Obviously he's got a passion for what he does. Entusiasm like that is contagious and inspiring IMO.

I told him I liked the torque roll he did in his routine and asked if we'd see a rolling harrier anytime soon..he looked back at his plane while smiling and said he needed just a little more power.

I'm sure that will happen sooner than later.

Always great to watch Sean do his thing.

In this poorly shot video is his harrier. I missed his tourqe roll, he sure looked like he
was in a dead hover

He definetly is cool! A buddy of mine gets a press pass every year up at Oshkosh. A couple of years ago he was invited to take in air shots of Sean's plane. Very cool stuff.

Great pics! I was there last year for a couple of days as an exhibitor, man that was an phenomenal airshow! Unnfortunately it cut into Joe Nall time, so I wasn't able to make it back this year - its a shame both events happen at the same time!

3 F-104 were there. Nice to see them fly, love the sound they make. As an airshow "performer" very boring.
