With just over a week to go until I fly out, here’s a memory of last year’s Sun ‘n Fun gathering in Lakeland Florida. The Black Diamond Jet Team with 4 L-39 and a T-33 performing an exciting break to finish their show.
The Black Diamonds stepped in to fill the void left by the cancellation of the USAF Thunderbirds as a result of the sequestration. The Diamonds are based at Lakeland Linder Airport where Sun ‘n Fun is held.
This year’s event brings the Blue Angels as the headlining jet team and I can’t wait to see them for the first time in 3 years.
