Is it a good show?  They have many ground displays?

Plan on fighting lots of traffic getting on base. It can be tricky going anywhere around here during these. My shop faces on of the flight lines so I get a free show multiple times a day.

I'm coming in over the top if we can get out of Houston on Thursday.

Friday is military appreciation day, if you can normally get on base with a ID your in. It is less hectic.

Once you've seen the blues, there's no reason to see'em again.

Luv me some Collings Helicopters.

I was told yesterday that we can't come in until after 4:00. Blues own the airspace from 11:00 to 4:00 on Thursday.

Love the Angels.  I have seen them about 7 times since 2007, and hope to see them again this year.

Bump as a reminder that Sunday is that last performance.

Anyone go today and can give a review? I would like to take my 7 year old son but am always leary of free events due to the number of people making it hard to get around, get drinks, food, bathroom etc...

Yeah I do not go to DFW area shows anymore, the traffic and crowds are insane.

I've been to that show before. It's a long day after traffic getting out of there, but it's worth it to see them.

Went Sunday
Hardly any traffic and modest crowd at best. half of the acts did not perform. LOTS of down time for a 5 hour show. The vietnam show was great.
