Watching the full scale (and 7/8ths scale) aircraft fly. I missed the Eindecker and the Sopwith Triplane, I hope I will see them fly another time.

Didn't make it this year. Had a birthday party for the wife to plan and attend. But last year we had a great time. Thing I really enjoyed is how close you can get to the historic planes.

Going through the hangers and talking with the people assigned to them. They were extremely knowledgeable. The air show itself was well put together as well. Job well done.

Our son's enthusiasm for the planes is adorable! Thank y'all SO much for the education and great experience you provide our family 🙂

Being a volunteer and getting to work with a bunch of amazing people as a team to make the event work !

The sounds & smells of the Gnome rotary engine runs on the test stand and on the red Fok Dr.I. ...And the speed of the Fok D.VIII Flying Razor.

The picture I took from Ladder 9-1...

We loved everything but especially loved the rc planes that flew! Such a neat addition to the show!!

I enjoyed all of it, Saturday was a beautiful day to be there.

Enjoyed all the flying aircraft and thank you for allowing me to fly my own plane in.

Wish I could have attended!

Always great to see and hear the planes flying. Awesome show!

This was AWESOME!!!

All the German planes.

What a great show. The Military Aviation Museum never ceases to amaze me. I have seen these planes many times now, but to view them in the sunlight was spectacular. I can not wait to see the WW2 planes flying next year.

Great memories from Iain and Abbie Watson's wedding there in 2014. Wonderful place.

any 100 year old planes still operable?

Today was outstanding!

Stephen Pfeiffer - just in case you wanted to get Stevie up there

That's Sandbridge way off in the distance. The Little Island Pier and Coast Guard complex are behind the top wing on the yellow plane. The body of water in between is Shipps Bay.

I was there today. Great time!

Nice, nice Focker ! 🙂

Come see us “Old Fokkers !”
