Dayton Airshow 2010

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 DC3, 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, AD5 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.
