Ray Fagen Memorial Airshow 2012

What a wonderful day we spent in Granite Falls at the Ray Fagen Memorial Airshow.  My cousin, Ron, puts on this airshow every other year in memory of my Great Uncle Ray.  It is such a fabulous event with entertainment for all!
 
 
 The inside of the Fagen Fighter WWII Museum.  It's a work in progress but spectacular just the way it is.
 
 
 This statue depicts the invasion of Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day.  My Great Unle Ray was the first man off his boat to hit the beach.  He is the man in front with his foot in the sand.
 
Here's some more pictures of the day that included looking at the planes, the actual airshow, a reenactment and Aaron Tippin performing at the end of the day.

I took MANY more pictures so if you want to see them all, I put them together with some music by Aaron Tippin!  Check them out here on Youtube.
 
 
You can also see a clip of the reenactment I recorded as well:
 
 
I look forward to seeing what the next one will be like ... even more fabulous I'm sure!
