'Now that was cool!': Thousands thrilled by Air Show - Seacoastonline
A crowd of approximately 30,000 people was all you could see at ground level, but if you set your sights higher, all manner of planes swirled, dove and soared Saturday during the Boston-Portsmouth Air Show at Pease International Tradeport.
Necks craned and hands formed a visor over foreheads, as awestruck spectators watched aerobatic performers including Rob Holland, military demonstration teams like the Brazilian Air Force Smoke Squadron and the astonishing formations of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
"I loved their dedication and discipline to what they have been able to do. It's quite a display and the rumbling in your chest is awesome," Carrie Pascoe of Nottingham said following the Blue Angels' performance. "They are part of our military, here to protect and give us our freedom."
The Air Show will continue today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with gates opening at 8 a.m. Tickets can still be purchased online or at the gate. ...
