2009 Joint Services Open House: Assorted Images (Part 1)

The Joint Services Open House is held every year during the second week of May at the Andrews Air Force Base in MD, USA. It features both a great airshow and static displays from the US Army, the US Air Force, the US Navy, the US Marine Corps, the US Coast Guard and also civilian organizations.

I visited the show on May 16th and took some pictures of the static displays. Unfortunately, the ceiling was very low and many of the air performances were delayed to times after my departure.

The C-17 Globemaster, a gargantuan transport.

The AC-130's arsenal is nothing to kid about

The AC-130's target acquisition system. You can run, but you can't hide ...

Nimble and versatile. What's not to like about this classic?
