Wow, not only the chalets taking up most of the real estate, but if I were going as a single attendee it would be $90 ($35 to park and $55 to get in, and I didn't go further but I bet there are additional ticket fees as well) without paying extra for a chalet!?! I understand air shows are expensive to put on, and I am sure people will jump onto this and say that based on a cost per hour of entertainment it really isn't that much, but that's a lot considering most military base put on free shows. Tack on another $20 for a hot dog and Coke and you've got a pretty expensive day.

I had a feeling the layout was going to look like this. Ugh.
