NAS Patuxent River Air Expo 2011

3 Sep 2011

Here are some photos from the 2011 Air Show at NAS Patuxent River. This show is more attractive than some other airshows simply because the aircraft based there tend to be unique in one way or another. For example, where else will you see an operational USN Otter?

This year`s show was especially nice due to the Centennial of Naval Aviation (CoNA) painted aircraft. The Navy flew in no less than seven aircraft in special CoNA colors! Several other aircraft displayed CoNA stickers.
