15 Things Only Air Show Fans & Aviation Enthusiasts Would Understand
I'll add mine:
After arriving early, setting up your chair among what you hope will be a great group of fellow enthusiasts and wandering the static displays all morning, you return to your chair to find yourself set up next to the loudest children at the event. As the warbirds taxi past, the youngest falls to the ground in a crying fit proclaiming "THIS ISN'T EVEN FUN!" You spend the rest of the afternoon hoping the parent's patience runs out before yours does.
^This may or may not be based on a true story from an airshow last summer.
Yes, I'll bet I've missed quite a few. I took my grand children to an air show a couple of years ago. They spent most of the time looking at their phones!
You forget to bring sunscreen, so after spending a day baking in the hot sun in the photographer's pit, and queuing for 2 hours for that once-in-a-lifetime photo-op with the special VIP guest who you've wanted to meet for years, you look like a recently-boiled lobster in the photo!
Not to mention the sweat-stains on my shirt... Still, met Col. Chris Hadfield! Cross one off the bucket list!
