Rockford AirFest

On Sunday afternoon Chris volunteered for American Airlines to help give tours of their new 737-800 at the Rockford AirFest. Since Chris is an employee and was helping out, Matthew and I also got into the AirFest, and we were able to take some pretty cool photos hanging out in the cockpit, and around the plane. It was such a unique opportunity to see it so up close, and be able to take the pictures we did. The AirFest was amazing. We both didn't realize how big it was, and were in awe of the Raptor and it's aerobatics!

The new 737-800...

Chris and Matthew playing with a balloon on the tarmac...

Kid in a candy store, so many buttons for Matthew to push!

We finally got a decent family shot in the cockpit...

I LOVE this shot, probably my favorite of the day!
