Talented pilots took to the skies at the annual Virginia Air Show that takes place at the Warren County Airport in Front Royal, Va.
As the day went on, the weather was questionable, however the show went on, at least for a time, before the wind and rain rolled in.
The gates to the Virginia Air Show opened at 7 a.m., however this reporter didn't arrive until just short of 11 a.m. In the early morning on the day's schedule of events was listed the arrival of the pilots and the aircraft they would be showcasing during their performances later in the day.
Still, there was plenty of time to walk around the airport grounds and explore this annual community event. On display were many small and vintage aircraft. For cars, several Mustangs were on display, along with some other models. Additionally, there were military vehicles, helicopters and World War II memorabilia for visitors to enjoy.
Unfortunately, this glider did not get a chance to take to the sky due to the increased winds and anticipated rain. Here the craft is led out for the crowd to see, but is on its way back to the hangar.
The P-51D "Mustang" gets ready to take off. This was one of the anticipated segments of this year's show, but would also be one of the last due to inclement weather, the show ended shortly after this performance.
These images highlight some of the performers, but there were several others as well. Despite the early close of the show of this annual gathering in Front Royal, Va., all in all, a great day.
