Well a few days ago we had the Blue Angels flying over Houston (CLICK HERE) and last Sunday we had a vintage plane flyover.

They flew 120 miles crisscrossing the Houston area.  We are downtown (#3 on the map) and so they flew by the building.  It was a little high up and some buildings blocked them from our view but with the camera and telephoto lens I was able to get some good pictures that we can share with you.

(as always click pics to enlarge)

We'll admit, we don't know all the plane types but they are still fun to see.

They flew over in groups...

...and singly.

And three at a time...


...just so neat to see in downtown.

It's fun seeing them still flying today, all these years later.

The best part to us is the sound they all make. It's a distinctive buzzing sound that you don't hear today. As they flew around downtown, the echo was amazing. We can only imagine that in WWII that sound let you know what was coming...good or bad.

Hope you had a good week.  We are still in quarantine lockdown but next week things start reopening.  We'll see.  We wear masks if we have to go out now and we'll continue that next week.


  1. Awesome photos.
    Nice that you are high enough in the apartment complex to get some good shots of the fly-over.
    Thank U 4 sharing your wonderful photos with us.
    Have an enjoyable weekend and enjoy watching the nascar races on Sunday.
    Stay safe & stay healthy

    1. From the looks of it, it was a beautiful day for a fly over; pretty blue sky and not a cloud in sight.

  2. I love those vintage planes. What a sight for you to see right outside your apartment. You got some good pictures of them.

  3. That sounds like a great experience. Yes, you did get a lot of rain if the standing rain is evidence.

  4. Thank you for the pictures, we missed this got over too. )-;
