Yeah, this is a nice start and a pretty easy drive from where I live. It's a similar lineup to the Wings by the Wabash show in September so far but Decatur is a larger airport and can probably accommodate more aircraft. Looking forward to more information!

So I messaged the show and they said its a normal show, not drive in. Which makes me wonder where things will be parked, besides cars. LOL
No statics maybe?

A-10s have arrived ANNNNNNNNND its two grey line jets. :(
Maybe saving time on the other jet?
On the plus side, the forecast at the moment looks quite nice.
