Thunder over Louisville

The soldiers conducting "Stretcher Relay Races"
The soldiers conducting "Stretcher Relay Races"
The National Guard / Polaris / Coastal Yokley Racing Team made an appearance at the 23rd annual Thunder over Louisville.  The 83 foot team hauler and Polaris Ranger RZR XP900 race machines were the main attraction in the Army National Guard's display area.  The 7 hour air show featured 90 aircraft, most of them military.  All types of aircraft participated including World War II P-51 Mustangs to modern Super Cobra attack helicopters and F-22 Raptor fighter jets.  The display of more than 70 tons of fireworks capped the evening off, marking the launch of festivities culminating in the May 5 running of the Kentucky Derby.

Even with the temperatures in the 50s, some 405,000 spectators turned out watching from both sides of the Ohio River and from more than 300 boats.  The atmosphere is very family orientated and the event is supported by the city of Louisville Kentucky, and many area corporate sponsors.  William Yokley met with the crowd all day and gave out team posters.  The attached photos were taken in the morning about 10 hours before the fireworks show and before most of the crowd arrived.
