Anderson Air Show

Filed under: Anderson Regional Airport, Guest Photographers — lessie @ 6:47 am


I can’t say enough how much I love this photo. Barron Cooley graciously allowed me to share it with you. He took it May 13 at the Anderson Snowbirds Air Show. He said the little boy was in his own world, complete with sound effects. His plane was even flying upside down, like many of the planes in the show. (Another version of the pic is here.) Regrettably, I didn’t attend , but literally thousands did — and I heard how good it was. Thanks, Barron, for sharing this photo with us.



  1. OMG….THIS IS PRICELESS! What a wonderful moment you have captured! If I were this kids mom, I would love to have this photo.

  2. What a lovely photo. Being B&W, it reminds of an old World War II photo with perhaps the kids dad, his hero, an RAF pilot.

  3. I’m happy to say that the little boy is my grandson, Jesse Michael Stallo, pilot-in-training.
