by on Jul.19, 2010, under Flying

Good weath­er, a great line up that includ­ed the Navy Blue Angles meant atten­dance of close to 80,000 peo­ple for this years Day­ton Air Show.

The show opened with Team Fas­trax with a large flag drop, then a Wright “B” Fly­er fly over, the Keven Cole­man (19 years old) aerobatics.

A lit­tle bit of his­to­ry on the 75 anniver­sary of the DC‑3, the incred­i­ble P‑51 and then the Navy F‑18 Super Hor­net Demo team squished vapor out of the air.

The AeroShell pre­ci­sion team per­formed and there was a large col­lec­tion of air­craft sta­t­ic dis­plays that inter­est­ed the crowd and pro­vid­ed shade.

The gen­er­al admis­sion crowds were big and the chalets were all sold out. Sean Tuck­er flew the new 400 Horse­pow­er Chal­lenger III.

The F‑16 Demo Team per­formed, two WWII B‑17 flew and what would a air­show be with­out a wing walker.

Fat Albert the Blue Angle C‑130 per­formed then the Blue’s them­selves put on a great exhi­bi­tion of pre­ci­sion fly­ing. In addi­tion to the acts pic­tured there was Kyle Franklin Waco Aer­o­bat­ics, AD‑5 Skyraider fly­over, Greg Poe’s MX2 Aer­o­bat­ics, the Air Force C‑17 Globe­mas­ter III demon­stra­tion, and a jet pow­ered bus. The show ran non-stop from 11:00 AM until 4:30 PM.
