I showed up as a first time exhibitor. I got to speak with many shows and introduce them to Augmented Reality and how to apply it to their air show experience.

My booth was across from Scott Airshows. He flies a cool Pitts S-1 routine.

Expect shows to start adding night time drone performances. They were a busy booth.

How do you become an air show pyro support service? You have a day job as a mining demolitions expert.

I saw a lot of skydiving acts, but only 2 straight up daredevil acts. This guy pulls at 150' & 100'.

Thanks for the pics! Glad it sounds like a productive time. I've never been so it's interesting to see some of what it's like.

@allen-cfapps OK, I have a few problems with this!!!

1st: How did I miss your booth? I thought I hit up (well, apparently almost) every thing! I was at Scott Airshows booth but somehow managed to miss you.

2nd: Not really a problem, but it's awesome that you home brew! I home brew as well. Prepping to brew a California Common this weekend (pending if I'm feeling better, I came down with something nasty shortly after returning from Vegas).

ICAS was certainly successful this year for us though. We got some solid work done on 2020 and 2021 shows. Of course, you can never go wrong spending time in Vegas either.
