They're not monkeying around

Still feeding off the pics from the airshow.  One of the highlights of the show, was the "scrafing" runs they performed.  Since we hadn't been to a show like this before, we weren't really ready for what was coming.  They had setup a giant inflatable gorilla out in the field and used it for target practice.  Pity anyone or anything in their sights.  Although, the gorilla did escape the first run, even though I think that was part of the program.  Once the aircraft dropped their payload it felt like you were standing on the sun and the wind from the blast made you think it was Armageddon.  Quite the exhibition.  Oh yeah, the gorilla did not survive the second, third, or fourth passes they performed.
