Warbird Flyby

Every afternoon, for the seven days of the show, they have an airshow. Part of the show each day is a showcase of flybys by the restored military aircraft that are here. Some of this is formation passes like in this picture, and others are individual runs, often simulating combat attacks.

The image at the right (click on it for a wider view) is of one of these formations. Notice the other formation, higher up that is passing by at about the same time. Often during these showcases, the sky can be filled with planes, all very carefully choreographed to look scary, but actually be perfectly safe.
