Over 39 years of Oshkosh/Airventure"s I've seen a lot of air show's, airshow acts and warbird shows.
I thought that Tuesdays air show was really good. Warbirds too, even without pyro.
I was disappointed with Friday's show. Both aerobatic and Warbird.
I know that ALL the airshow acts are good at what they do. But, I was a little disappointed that it was going to be all women. Nothing against women, I'm married to one. Even though they were good, I just personally like the guy acts better.
As far as the warbird shows, I haven't seen a REALLY GOOD one since 1990-1995. Maybe the last time "Fifi" was there. I also realize that the warbird show is only possible by what warbirds make it to the show, who can/will fly in the show, etc. Friday's show did seem a little slow and anti-climactic even with the "wall of fire".
Back in the 90's there were larger formations of trainers, more bombers in formation, tighter show.
Now, I really can't complain much. I mean getting the chance just to see and hear these great flying aircraft in person is a privilege. And I thank everyone who flies them to Oshkosh and flies in the show.
Their keeping history alive.
