The local EAA 182 chapter was there with a booth and some information on what they do (Yes, Frank, I promise I will pay my dues here eventually *sheepish grin*). Many people had their planes on static display. The only military aircraft this year on display were the ones privately owned since Congress is sequestered, we were told. That also explained why the Blue Angels didn't fly this year. Instead, the Canadian Snowbirds generously came down and entertained us with a very impressive show. I loved the air ribbon they did representing the United States and Canadian military forces, not to mention the air heart although I'm sad to say I couldn't catch who it was done for so if anyone was able to hear who it was, let me know!
We didn't wander around too much as my son was more interested in the air show, but we had a great time. We saw Skip Stewart fly, Gene Soucy and Teresa Stokes, Matt Younkin among others.
AND I'm proud to say that I went the whole afternoon without a single bit of sunburn on me thanks to gobs of sunscreen and my handy-dandy mini-umbrella. Yup, it was a good day.
