Jets, Tops of Senegal Date Palms (Phoenix reclinata) at the Air Show San Diego (Senegal Date Palms (Phoenix reclinata))

San Diego had an air show celebrating 100 years of Naval Aviation over San Diego Bay on Feb. 12, 2011. The weather was perfect 80ºF/27ºC even at the water's edge.

It was terrific! I could believe how gorgeous the weather was...because close to the SD Bay it can be quite breezy.

Thanks! Last week Saturday the weather was very warm throughout San Diego County from 80ºF/27ºC - 85ºF/30ºC. in most areas. Yesterday a big storm came through with high winds and heavy rains and we're expecting another big one tonight. I guess we can use the rain after 7 weeks of warm, dry weather. :>)

Hope your brother-in-law enjoyed the show! It was quite crowded around San Diego Bay -- 200,000 plus people showed up. :>)

Great photo D. my hubbie is air show nuts, we have a good one here @ Biggin Hill a small airport in Kent every summer.

We have a very large air show every year at Miramar Air Field a Military Base.

Have you seen the Red Arrows Delonix? Amazing show they give.

23 Feb, 2011



No, I've never seen the Red Arrows. I'm not sure if they perform here in the U.S.

The big air show performer here in the U.S. is the Blue Angels.

23 Feb, 2011


I expect they are similar though, my hubbie says that the Arrows dont perform in the U.S. Shame really.

23 Feb, 2011



I would've been very surprised if they did perform here...since, they're a military based aircraft.

25 Feb, 2011


I know, but what a spectacle.

25 Feb, 2011



You're not kidding. :>) Thanks!
