Blogging AirVenture: Day Five

Man it's hot today! 95+

The big thing so far today was a brief appearance by the Navy jet performance team The Blue Angels.

Apparently they've never appeared before, as a group, at AirVenture. So it was cool that they did. But it was also a little disappointing that they only did three, five ship, formation passes, then left.

Things are starting to wind down. A lot of the early arriver airplanes have started to leave. There are many empty spaces in the airplane parking now. Three days ago it was all full.

Today, tomorrow and sunday are usually the biggest crowds of the week. But a lot of that is the "civilian" attendees who want to see the show, but aren't really aviation people.
