Went went on Friday night and had tickets for Saturday. We also purchased parking online - supposedly "VIP parking". NO signs directing anyone to VIP parking - not even the people directing traffic could tell us where it was. Ended up parking in free parking.
We got there at 5:15pm - gate was supposed to open at 6pm but they said they would open early. Then they said only those who had chalet or box seats would get in early - made everyone else (and the line was a couple blocks long) wait till after 6pm to enter - and the evet started at 6:45p. Then didn't know where we should stand, cars kept driving through so the line was constantly moving back and forth, and there was no shade. There was no reason to keep everyone out - even when they let everyone in the food vendors weren't even ready till around 7pm.
Not many food/drink vendors - crazy-long lines. Overpriced. Not many port-a-potties - very long lines for them.
If you go on Friday night do not bother to get there early. You have to buy reserved seats so it makes no sense to come early. Don't arrive till around 6:30pm - just before the event starts. Also, be prepared to walk a long ways to your seats unless you buy chalet or box seats. Also, be prepared to have your tickets checks multiple times - they scan your ticket at the entrance so when you get inside they ask to see your ticket over and over - if they stamped or banded people that wouldn't happen.
The Friday night show started off good but then got a bit boring. Not all scheduled performers actually performed that night. Disappointing.
Overall - not recommended. I've been to many, many airshows and this was the only one where we had a bad expereince. We had pre-paid tickets (and "VIP parking") for Saturday but didn't bother going.
