Default Thank you NY ANG

Went up to Niagara Falls, NY to teach a class for the last two weeks. Nice to be in cooler northern weather for a change. I've never been to Niagara Falls, or the Northeast for that matter, so this was a good trip for me.

Here's some pics I took of the falls, followed by some more pics of an incentive flight I was able to take before I left Friday. Seeing in-flight refueling in pictures is cool, but it ain't nothin' until you get to see it first-hand. This was fricken awesome!!!! They even went BACK UP again for me and my buddy after they had already landed just so we could get a ride over the Falls, at 3,000 feet.

The Falls was definitely nice, but I wasn't hugely impressed w/ the city of Niagara Falls. Canada was cool though.

Was that just a training mission or were those vipers supporting Noble Eagle?

The Viper in that pic had a white one on the rail so me thinks its Noble Eagle...

Niagara Falls NY is so ghetto, I hate it there. Candadian side is cool though.

Nice pics, the falls are pretty cool, been there.

Also been in a 135 watching my fathers old 16's get refuled. VERY cool, a must for anyone that has the chance to go.

Just sucks when the heater gets stuck on......
