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.
C-17 Wheel fairings.
Several C-130s from the Air National Guard, and an MH60S
Propellor of a C-130J Super Hercules
Refueling Hose of a KC-130
Better view of the C-130s lined up.
Patriots Jet Team lined up
L-39 Albatross; interesting seeing it up close, and not on fire over Syria

"Bambi Bucket" used for water-drops from a helicopter. Looks small in videos, but it was nearly bigger than me
Never too old for a jumbo-snowcone
