Sean Tucker in the Oracle Challenger II performing in front of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Sean does a tight loop, which looks great with the smoke and nice blue skies.

Consisting of Sean Tucker, Ben Freelove, Eric Tucker, and Bill Stein, these four planes are the Collaborators.

Tim Weber, and the Extra 300 performing over the bay.

Here's Julie Clark making a low pass in her T-34 plane.

Tailing red, white, and blue smoke, Julie flies a very patriotic routine!

Sean Tucker, wowing the crowd with a crazy falling corkscrew.


The Collaborators flying in formation with the Transamerica building in the background.

You could tell it's Sunday because the weather is so dismal!

Melissa Pemberton in her Blue Edge 540 going past Aquatic Park.

Streaking past Coit tower, another San Francisco landmark.

This pass has the Palace of Fine Arts as a backdrop. Nowhere else but San Francisco, baby!

Michael Wiskus in the Lucas Oil Pitts S-1 flying really close to the water.

Julie Clark in front of the Marina Green, with the exclusive Pacific Heights homes in the hills.

Though not ideal positioning to watch everything, Pier 39 nevertheless is packed during the show! By the way, the Bay Bridge back there carries the bulk of the commuter traffic (of all the bridges here).

Julie likes to end her routine by waving a large American flag outside the cockpit. No, can't see it here...I'm just saying. :-)
