Fly ins and Airshows are such a unique experience. It's a place where you meet seemingly normal people own some sort of airplane and fly it for fun! It's also a place where there's an airshow which included airplanes doing dangerous but entertaining flips in the air and jets roaring across the sky doing things I never thought a jet could do!
The Blue Angels performed at the airshow, talk about igniting my American pride!
The day started early. We arrived at Sun N Fun around 8:30 am. We walked around all of the personal aircraft. We saw all of the home built aircraft (people build their own planes and then use them, who would have thought?).
|Somebody built this plane in their garage and now fly it around!|
|Notice the airplane over the Fiat? This trailer was pulled behind a motorhome. Talk about having all the toys with you!|
Next we walked around all of the military planes.
Then we checked out the booths and vendors.
|Personal jet for sale in case you need a jet.|
Next we enjoyed lunch. Then we sat down to enjoy the airshow!
|The crowd watching the show.|
|Airplanes writing in the sky!|
|Notice the huge explosion at the bottom of the photo? The war planes did some faux bomb dropping for the crowd.|
After the airshow we walked around a little more watching the light sport aircraft take off and land.
We had dinner and then went back to our seats for the night airshow which consisted of planes flying in loops with fireworks shooting off of them and a fire works show! We left Sun N Fun around 11pm! It was a long fun day in the sun!
Have you ever been to an airshow? I'm sure this won't be our last!
