Thunder over Cedar Creek is an airshow up near Corsicana, about 4 hours drive from my house. I believe it is the only one in Texas held over a lake.
I met Jim, Glenn and Nadya up there, and cutting a long story short, we scored the most fabulous vantage point for the show, on a private two-story boat dock overlooking the lake. We were right on the display line, just outside the aerobatic box. One heck of a great view!
Pictures from the show are still to come, but I had to share these. I took time lapse video of the final two performers of the night, flying aerobatics with lights and pyrotechnics.
Here is Matt Younkin flying his Beech 18:
This one is Otto the Helicopter (a Schweizer 300) flown by Roger Buis:
And finally, here is the time lapse video showing both aircraft:
We all thoroughly enjoyed this show and hope to return next year!
