    Gettin' Some Air

    Here's a shot of one of the two monster trucks at the Lebanon (CT) Country Fair gettin' a little air on one of the jumps.

    Thanks Justin!

    They're really not that close. The only one that is somewhat close is the guy with the camera crouching down on the left (he's with the monster truck guys) - and he's still a good 15-20 feet from the barrier, and about 25 feet behind the truck. The rest are actually beyond the end of the track - they were good about keeping people at a safe distance.

    They weren't all that loud - that jet quad however was pretty damned loud!

    I'd say that was a tad more than a little air. great photo Tom, and a real nice angle.
