Hillsboro Air Show

Post by Mark1 » May 23rd 2022, 6:25am

Here's a few shots from the Oregon International airshow on Saturday. The theme this year was She Flies, so all the performers were women. As such, there were no large demonstration teams on hand. FYI, around 7% of the licensed pilots in the US are women. That percentage is even lower in the rest of the world. The 700,000 certificated pilots in the US account for more than a third of the worlds total. There is another airshow in August featuring the Thunderbirds, Codguy and I are planning to attend. The weather Saturday was fairly cloudy but it worked out pretty well considering that scheduling an airshow in Oregon in May is a crapshoot.

Fucking-A Mark, those pics are awesome as usual. :Thumbsup: :Thumbsup:
Looks like a decent Hillsboro day for a show.


------> and if it wern't for my total fear of flying, I'd might actually enjoy them even more.

Thanks for your time to take & share!

Nice photos Mark. Cod appears to be channeling daycoo and the faux aviator.
