Air Fiesta 2013 - Brownsville

I love taking pictures at the air show every year. While they have fantastic acts every year, my favorite is the Tora! Tora! Tora! - the re-enactment of Pearl Harbor.

This year, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Commemorative Air Force's air shows in the Rio Grande Valley, they offered visitors an expanded version. I can't think of a better way for children and adults to feel the magnitude of that attack - the sounds, the smells and the confusion.

The re-creation ended with President Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous speech to Congress on Dec. 8, 1941.
