I don't think I have been to an airshow since I was in elementary school. So having the "stars align" (and a very gracious wife) landed me at EAA this year. A friend has been trying to get me to go for quite a while, but with 2 young kids we always had other forces pulling us away. Of course I took my camera, but I was really trying to take in the sites first, a discipline I always need to work on.
If you live in the mid-west, and like a good show, EAA is hard to beat...actually some would say it is the best in the world. Not sure the best flying show, but the best display of working airplanes (historic war-birds to modern "homebuilds" and a lot of Experimental Aircraft in between) and amazing culture of flying is definitely world class. It was like Disneyland for kids with their planes.
