Old pictures of airplanes

As I write, I can hear the planes over Chicago practicing for the Air & Water Show this weekend.

While I’m not able to see anything from my window, I do have pictures that we took from the show two years ago.  I can definitely identify one of these, maybe two.

  • Ummm, let’s see…
    Propeller planes,
    Very fast very loud fighter jet thing,
    Giant Boomerang (jk, jk, I know what that is),
    aaaaand another very fast very loud thingy.
    Dave, am I right? Am I right?

  • Can’t quite tell what the first ones are. They look like F6Fs or maybe P-47s.

    F/A-18F Super Hornet

    B-2 “Spirit” Stealth Bomber

    F-22 Raptor.

  • I knew the B2, of course.

    And my guess was going to be the F22, but I couldn’t quite remember from the pictures. I do remember how cool the F22 was, flying straight up, hovering and doing a flip mid-air. Makes you do a double-take, because it doesn’t act like your brain tells you an airplane should act.
