A great shot of one of the planes flying over.
(not my photo)
These two stood in L-O-N-G lines, first to get a big corn dog, a pop and then these ice cream cones. About an hour for the cones!!! A shorter line to get a large bag of caramel corn that we all shared and Mickey & I shared a pop.

Lovely picture of me watching the planes flying over.....but at least it's proof I was there!!!
Another fly over shot that we took.
The show was fantastic and well worth the drive, the gridlock, and the walk. It was only the second public demonstration of a rocket powered airplane. They had 2 of them and they performed a lot of stunts and were amazing. The tail stream when firing had yellow coloring added on one and red on the other to distinguish them.
The next feature was the 2009 championship Glider flyer. Then they paraded and flew 16 vintage WWII air planes. It was awesome. They flew over many times for the applauding crowds.

THEN about 3 o'clock Aric and I started on the L-O-N-G walk back. Again, I had to walk, stop, unfold chair, sit, rest, and then go again. We finally arrived back at the car at 4 o'clock. Boy, were we tired, and dehydrated!!! Mickey & Oksana arrived shortly after, even though they had started out later but did not have to stop.
