I've never been to an airshow (at least, gone somewhere specifically for that), but I get the Smithsonian Air & Space magazine - it has some nice info on new developments in the field. I think my favorite airplane has to be the U-2 (http://allabout.co.jp/entertainment/airplane/closeup/CU20030219A/cu0502.jpg). That plane is just cool looking.

When I used to live in San Diego I'd go down to the Miramar Airbase every year and watch the Blue Angels....

Yes our airshow is this October 15th, 16th, and 17th. Airshows are pretty cool, the last one I went to had this paratrooper landing re-enactment, complete with explosions. :)

I went to an airshow a couple of weeks ago, everything seemed a bit quieter after I left. I don't know why. :/
