Kelly's Airforce Base

So off we went to visit Diana's brother who is an F16 pilot at KAB in San Antonio, and the boys had lots of fun. we went so Jo could take some photo's and for her dad as well who was out visiting, and also loves planes. diana arranged it all for us.


'Uncle Mike ' helping Alex on with the helmet at the testing station
I took a poor photo on my iPhone of the kids outside the F16 HQ
In the training room...Jo gets in and shows us how one should get into a jet...why did she not go first...
My turn...
A good way to disguise bens dirty face....what a mean mum I am..he was having fun
here goes Jack...
My gorgeous red headed son next..
Oh, there you go his face was not dirty
They are all queueing up to have a go, Ben was brave as he went first and had no idea what he was volunteering for...
we had lunch on base as well, and in the afternoon we went out to the run w ay and saw F16's take off another giant plane..which I am sure Jo will tell us what it is...Sorry Jo I can not remember...forgive me

The big giant plane was a C-17 Globemaster. We also saw a couple of sleek, pointy T-38s too, training jets smaller than the F-16s. Cool stuff.
