This crazy shot of aeronautics insanity with multi-colored exhaust smoke was just one of the many weird sights last week in Guangdong Province, China, during the 7th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition. Check out the planes up close, and see what the experience did to one extreme fan.

This airshow fan had planes on the brain - literally. Not only does he have awesome eye bling, but he actually stuck acupuncture needles into his forehead topped with planes. That's devotion for you.

I took the kids to the New England airshow at Westover AFRB. Now THAT, people, is an airshow. F-18s doing stuff that airplanes aren't supposed to be able to do. C-5s looming over the crowd like cathedrals with wings. Vintage warbirds from the Second World War. The Jet Truck. Fried dough. And, oh, yes, the Thunderbirds. Did I mention the Thunderbirds? Watching them scream by overhead at haircut level in red-white-and-blue splendor would give even William Ayres a raging patriotic hardon.

Didn't see anyone with airplane pins in his head. I guess the Chinese are ahead in the batshit crazy fan self-mutilation department. We're ahead in the supernaturally awesome airplanes department.
