what a ride

Fat Albert making its signature departure during the beginning of its brief aerial demonstration.


If you look closely, you can see someone looking out the rear window (the square one) as well as someone holding a camera in the bubble window (top of fuselage, just foward of the star).


Imagine my amazement to learn two Flickr contacts scored a ride during Fat Albert's demo. That's incredible, given the hazardous nature of any high performance demonstration during an airshow, but especially considering the unexpected, tragic crash of a C-17 practicing for the airshow earlier in the week.
