While driving around in the prairie, I saw this helicopter hovering very low to the ground, almost on the ground. It then began to move forward very fast, and flew almost directly overhead. Luckily I was able to get out in time and take a few pictures.
I suspect this is a Bell 206, which is a single engine or twin engine twin rotor multipurpose helicopter. They are made by the Bell Helicopter Textron company is Mirabel, Quebec. For more information, look here.
I suspect this one was flying a pipeline.

|C-17 Globemaster III. Click for Larger|
This specific one, serial 0185, is a Boeing C-17A Lot XII Globemaster II, and is named "Spirit of America". The "0" in front of "185" may indicate a ten year old aircraft.
For more information about the C-17, go here.
Many of these photos are very high resolution. I’ve noticed that when you click on a photo for a larger size, it may not always be the biggest size. To get the photo on its highest resolution, after clicking on it and getting the photo with a surrounding dark but slightly transparent frame, right click on the photo, and press “view image”. That will open it so it is the only thing on the page, and if the photo is larger, you will be able to zoom.
Thanks, and enjoy the blog!

F-15 E Strike Eagle.
The F-15 E is basically the same as the regular variants of the F-15, however the F-15 can be used for ground attack, rather than the regular F-15's, which are "pure fighters".

|Cessna 208B "Caravan" Serial Number N765FE. Click for Larger.|
This is a Cessna 208B "Caravan", a fixed wing single engined aircraft, with a turboprop engine. They typically seat nine passengers with a single pilot, but this one belongs to Federal Express and is used for cargo.
This picture was taken at the same airshow as the below two entries, however this plane actually interrupted the airshow. I actually happen to know the pilot.
