Jacksonville’s Muggy and Mystifying 2019 Sea and Sky Spectacular Air Show

Jacksonville Air Show - Sea and Sky Spectacular - F-35 transonic cone cloud

Ever since I can remember, I have loved planes. In fact, it was my love of aviation that brought me from my childhood home in New England to Florida back in the late 90’s to study to be a pilot. So, it should come as no surprise that I love air shows. One of my earliest memories is standing atop a hill overlooking Pease Air Force Base (now Pease Tradeport) as one of the Thunderbirds flew right over my head – seemingly just a few feet above me. There is just something about an air show – the raw power of the planes, the almost superhuman skill of the pilots, and then there’s the back-to-back death defying feats on display for all to see. Its no wonder that even the threat of rain couldn’t keep out the crowds for the 2019 Jacksonville Sea and Sky Spectacular this past weekend. Here’s just a taste of the sights from this weekend, and be sure to check out our full gallery for many, many more fine art images from the air show.

The Plane! the Plane! 2015 Sea and Sky Spectacular

Little known fact: when I was a child, I really, really, really wanted to be a pilot – I dreamed of flying fighters for the Air Force and even began the lengthy process of applying for the academy.  If it weren’t for my sudden need of glasses, who knows where I would be today.  Yet I was undeterred and headed to college with every intent of becoming a pilot and flying commercially.  However, after a year of flight training, I realized that while I love flying, the appeal of commercial aviation as a career began to wane, and… so here I am today, a professional photographer, writing this post for your enjoyment (or derision if you prefer).

But enough about me.  Let’s talk about this weekend’s Sea and Sky Spectacular at Jacksonville Beach.  Sunday afternoon, after church, we headed out to see the air show – though the weather was less than ideal and threatened rain, the show area managed to stay precipitation-free the entire time.   The show itself was filled with a wonderful variety of performers, from solo acts and formation groups, to historic flights from a couple of P-51 Mustangs and an F4U Corsair, to Fat Albert and the Blue Angels.  Because of all the moisture in the air, the planes were throwing vapor trails left and right, which made for some pretty cool opportunities, like the one above.
