I personally don't enjoy air shows but this event is very popular if you are an airplane buff. It's in the summer when it is almost always good weather. There are many airplanes to look at and lots of aerial displays.

I like the military aircraft, especially the thunderbirds and Blue Angles. The routines are impressive and so exact considering they are traveling so fast and working with other planes.

This is a great event if you are prepared for a few of the things that are just part of the whole experience. There will be crowds, you hope there will be sun but when you have a sunny day have hats and lotion, there will be a little dust, food and drink prices are ridiculous, but there is no such thing as a bad seat when the US military starts showing off your Defense budget. Some folks take really lilttle kids to this event--pretty much a bad idea. The static displays of dozens of aircraft are great for kids about 7 years of age and up. The in-the-air acts often take quite a bit of time and after the seventh pass of someone flying upside down in a piper cub trailing smoke there is an urge to throw rocks. But it is a great way to spend a day in the right frame of mind.

This is one of the best shows in Oregon each year! Families take blankets and picnics out to see the machinations of the airplanes. Usually the Blue Angels or some other flying group performs at this event. Something to look forward to!

Varies widely depending on weather and if they can get the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds. We live close and often enjoy practices from our backyard. They often have unusual events or aircraft.
