Apple Valley Airshow 2016 Banner

The Apple Valley Airshow was held on October 8, 2016. This is always a fun show. For photographers, the mountains in the background are always a nice backdrop when the airplanes fly lower. There was a nice mix of aerobatic performances and warbirds. There was also some nice formation flyovers by the 805 Squadron of Navions and the West Coast Ravens in their Van's RVs. It's a full, fun day of family-friendly entertainment at a great price for admission!

At this show, we got to see the final performance of Dr. Frank Donnelly, flying his "Tumbling T-Cart". Dr. D is retiring from airshows. He will still be flying, just not in airshows. We want to wish him well in his retirement and thank him for the years of great performances!

My son, Jacob, has been joining me at these airshows and had taken well to photographing the show. This was his second time at Apple Valley and one he looked forward to. This was my daughters first airshow, and first time with a camera to take photos at a show. Kayleigh loved it and now she's hooked as well. She can't wait to go to another airshow to shoot some photos. Be sure to check out their galleries for samples of their work.
