Joint Base Andrews Air Show # 1

These planes are the Geiceo Skytypers based in Farmindale, NY

This is the famous "Golden Knights" the U.S. Army Parachute Team

The weather was great for the 2011 Joint Service Andrews Air Show. This was my first trip to the air show, and I was not disappointed. Tomorrow I will post some "people shots" from the Air Show. And for those of you in the DC area, the show continues tomorrow!

Cabs in Waiting @ Reagan National Airport

These cabs are in waiting around the corner from the Main Terminal (B & C) at Reagan National Airport.   Most passengers never see this!

This guy acts as a "conductor" telling the cabs when to make the turn to pick up passengers in need of  a ride

There is a lot of waiting around before they go around the corner to make the "pick up"

Blessed John Paul II

Earlier today in Rome, Pope John Paul II, became Blessed John Paul II in a Beatification ceremony in St. Peters Square.  A couple of weeks ago when I was in Baltimore, I photographed this garden to commemorate John Paul II's visit to Baltimore in 1995.
