How nice that the merchants of death and destruction get to enjoy a swell air show, and get to hobnob with each other! I hope it rains on their picnic!
The USAF, of which I am an 8 year veteran, has always put on free air shows The Navy does as well.
Many years ago, I used to take my family to these. Never again will I attend one, as I have known for years that their purpose is not entertainment, but P.R. designed to keep the public's support.
