Last October was the annual air show at Ellington Field JRB, to the south of Houston.

The weather was distinctly unseasonal, with the more usual warm sunshine replaced by cooler and wetter weather - this certainly impacted the Saturday show. I paid a quick visit on the Sunday morning, before driving west to San Antonio and beyond. This was a bright, sunny but windy morning and the public enclosure faces south.

Around 0900 the F4 and F100 started up and took off for some air-to-air photos with a couple of L29s, returning about 45 minutes later.

So, apologies for these - I did my best facing into the sun!

Loving that F-100 lift off pic even more than the F-4. Both some mighty a/c!
