California International Airshow 2012 | Salinas, California

Today (September 23, 2012) concluded this year's California International Airshow in Salinas.
The airshow spans two days and had an exciting line up this time around.

I attend annually and always have a blast.

I left my DSLR at home, my apologies, so all of the photos have been taken with my iPhone 4.

I'll do my best to annotate each image, but I cannot remember the names of all of the planes (perhaps some of you can help me out).

I hope you all enjoy the images (I skipped the monster trucks and planes landing on school buses, because they are common and have only been seen 400 times.)

Again, sorry about the poor picture quality; enjoy:

After 30 minutes of parking troubles, the main "gate" is in sight; as well as the C-17 Globemaster.

A quick peek inside the C-17; it amazes me that a bigger plane can exist.
