The Red Bull Air Race came to San Diego this weekend, and with little to no encouragement the family and I headed over to catch part of the race from Coronado Island.
Having never been to an air race before, we had no idea what to expect, but the number of folks setting up on the beach and around the ferry landing gave us the distinct impression we were in for a great show. From where we parked and the entire walk over to where we'd planned to set up the kid was in awe of the planes and the "tricks" they were doing. If you've never seen the Disney movie Planes, you'll understand completely when I say all we heard every time a plane went over was "that Dusty. That's Dusty!"
Anyway, between the kid playing in the sand and water with the rest of the kids and the planes flying their "tricks" it was a spectacular afternoon with fun had by the whole family.
Here are some of the photos from the event.
