If you are into aviation, this is one of your mecca's. One of the places you "must see", at least once in your life. A bucket list item, the Races is the other.

We have attended the National Championship Air Races for many years. Each year the organization, displays and atmosphere improves. Baring occasional tragic events, the Event is a spectacle for all air enthusiasts. Going on Friday gets you the full experience without the crowds.
