Planes of Fame
Preview day at the annual Planes of Fame air show. t'was their first preview day and sunset flights, with a much more manageable crowd of 2,000 people on preview day as opposed to 30,000 on the weekend.
A massive number of airplanes on display and flying, including enough flying P-51 Mustang's to make up a full squadron or more (!), plenty of T-33 Shooting Star's and far more T-6 Texan's than expected. A few foreign aircraft as well, including a Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero, Focke-Wulf Fw 190, and a MiG-15. Very, very impressive collection.
Nice jobs with a USAF heritage flight (three P-51's, a B-25 Mitchell), Canadian Air Force CF-18 demo, Oracle acrobatics team and several others, plenty of World War One-era biplanes, and of course, the USAF F-22 demo team. Flyovers so close you didn't need a zoom lens to see details, and a lovely sunset display by the CF-18.
An amazing show, well worth the drive, and definitely go on preview day. Less aircraft actually flying, but the crowd being much, much smaller is worth the trade-off! (beware of the rough dirt parking lot, tho...)
