I’m an air show announcer/commentator, instrument rated pilot, and avid traveler. My favorite airplane is the one I’m currently flying. 🇺🇸

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25 - one of the fastest fighter aircraft ever produced. - Introduced in 1967, the ‘Foxbat’ was built with the intentions to take on XB-70 Valkyrie bombers and protect the vast territories of the Soviet Union. With a top speed of Mach 2.5, the MiG-25’s fuselage would heat to temperatures ranging from 570-750°F in flight. - avgeek airplane aviation aircraft coldwar fighterjet foxbat interceptor mikoyan mig mig25 МиГ25 sovietaviation sovietairforce riga rix russianairforce ussr travel россия пермь парковый авиа миг25 ввс армия армияроссии

Very fortunate to be able to capture the Russian Antonov AN-124 Ruslan At IND today! Operated by Volga-Dnepr Airlines, VDA3136 Heavy arrived to IND direct from ANC early this morning. - The Antonov AN-124 is the largest military transport aircraft in the world. For thirty years it was the heaviest gross weight production cargo aircraft (now surpassed by the B747-8F). It even features an onboard crane to lift containers into the cargo hold at the rear of the aircraft. - antonov an124 airplane airport aviation avgeek aviationphotography cargojet ind indy indianapolis indspotting instaplane instaviation planespotting RA82079 sovietaviation russianaviation volgadnepr volgadneprairlines

Throwback to when we flew the Skyhawk to southern Indiana simply to pick up some barbecue. Ridiculous? Maybe. Do we care? Nope.

They say red cars are ticketed for speeding more often than vehicles of other colors. I guess we’ll have to test this theory.

Why no, that is not a giant flying sky eel. GoPro cameras often have a difficult time capturing the spinning propeller as it moves at a high rate of speed. It makes for some footage to be a little weird if you don’t know what you’re looking at!

I always enjoy being able to work with fellow announcers in the air show industry. One of those is Danny Clisham, who recently celebrated his 50th season as an air show announcer. I am proud to call Danny a mentor.

Cleared into the track, SmokeOn! - The air race was a lot of fun despite the wind and the cold. It's fun to hear the crowd's reaction of the pylon hit during lap 2.

I absolutely love this picture! - Inside a vintage 1950s Greyhound Scenicruiser yesterday in downtown Evansville during the bus rally. I don't know if it's the skyline or the windows or the nostalgic of a time gone by, but this image emits a lot of emotion for me.

It's been awhile since I've flown. Life gets in the way more often than I'd like, but that should change very soon (with potentially some new airplanes too)!

Some Blue Angels action today during this afternoon's demonstration at the Chicago Air & Water Show. - Lincoln Park is approximately 1 mile show left of center-point on the 500 ft show line. It made for some insane low passes!

Last night, I had the honor of serving as the master of ceremonies & DJ for Chris & Kendal's wedding reception in Louisville, KY. It was a lot of fun! - I had never DJ'ed a wedding before, and judging by all the compliments I feel I did exceptionally well. Perhaps this could be the beginning of a future side-hustle!
