One of the coolest recurring Corvette shows that happens once every couple of years is Vettes and Jets on the Lex. Over 300 Corvettes are loaded onto the flight deck of the retired aircraft carrier USS Lexington for a two day Corvette show. The Corvettes are parked next to many of the retired jets from our Armed Forces and proceeds of the event goes to support The Wounded Warrior Project.
One of the attendees was Tim LeGros who goes by the call sign of “SoSlow1” on the Corvette Forum. On Sunday morning as the sun was rising, Tim hit the flight deck of “The Blue Ghost” as the Lex was called and took these great photos showing the Corvettes intermingled with the Jets on the flight deck.
The event is really a three day affair as the Corvettes converged Friday evening in Corpus Christi, TX. Loading of the cars onto the flight deck is an event unto itself as the Corvettes begin loading on the Lex at 5am Saturday morning.
Check out these photos and videos from the 2013 Vettes and Jets on the Lex:
