CHICOPEE — The 2012 Great New England Air Show is several aircraft closer to reality, as military planes of all types and eras began arriving at Westover Air Reserve Base on Thursday.
The Republican staff photographer Dave Roback was at Westover, capturing images of the planes coming in for a landing and on the tarmac. Online editor Greg Saulmon took to the air for a test ride with the Geico Skytypers, and took photos to put you in the seat with these aerobatics and skywriting pilots flying in close formation.
Slideshows by Roback and Saulmon are included in this article.
The air show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine. Gates will open
at 8:30 a.m. and the flying demonstrations will begin at 10 a.m.
