    The air show is this weekend at the NAS JRB in Belle Chasse, Saturday and Sunday, Blue Angels will be there. I have so many fond memories of going when I was a kid with my dad who was in the LA air national guard. Working just across the Canal from the base on Engineers Rd. I love getting a preview of the show. Haven't seen anyone else post about it so I figured I would. Reserve tickets for the VIP area are being sold at neworleansairshow.com , Should be fun!

    I have similar fond memories from my dad taking me as a kid. When I joined the military out of high school, I selected an aviation job due in large part to those memories (as well as watching Top Gun too many times). I was lucky enough to land a sweet gig as an aircrewman on C-130s while in the military and look forward to taking my kids to the airshow this weekend.

    Good stuff man. Thank you for your service. My dad did weapons load crew on A-10s and always had a fondness for them that he passed to me. Just love seeing an A-10 on the ground or the air. Probably be Saturday afternoon for me. My 5 year old isn't fond of extremely loud environments for a long period. Just trying to catch the later performers and the Angels hopefully.

    Roadie, thank your Dad for me. My memory is waiting in traffic to get in when the La ANG passed over the car. We never seen them coming. They where flying F-4 Phantoms & passed over head at treetop level when they lit the Afterburners!!! It scared the Shieft out of us! That Was Great!

    Sadly, dad passed a few years ago. I will still extend those thanks in my prayers. I can't wait to do the same thing my dad and I did with my son. He already reminds me of myself as a kid so I think he'll love it!

    A long time ago I worked P.D.N.O. 1802 Engineer's road. In the week or two leading up to the air show, it got LOUD around there.

    Kids had a blast and the angels were amazing as always. The engines didn't even bother my little ones ears. My kids really enjoyed seeing the Humvees and the planes. Yall go check it out and enjoy the show! My son is still talking about it!
