Nellis AFB Aviation Nation Air Show 2017 - Pt 5 Say 'Bye'

I wasn't able to watch FiFi, the B-29 come in but Bettina got some excellent pics. However, On Monday, as most of the air show participants were leaving I did see her take off from Nellis. I saw the U-2 take off as well from Nellis while at the same time Bettina saw it from the house and managed to get a few photos of planes leaving. Here's a couple of parting shots. Enjoy!
