The Air Show at the Little Rock Air Force Base is this weekend. Although we don't live in Jacksonville, where the base is located, we are relatively close to the flight pattern. The Blue Angels have been in town, and have been practicing in the mornings. Early.
If you've never been to the Air Show, you need to go. Gates open at 8:30, and admission is free. Lanes into the base will be backed up so plan ahead, and get there early to avoid long waits. I must admit, even though I live close, I haven't been since the late 80s. The main thing I remember about my last Air Show was being on the tarmack with my friends, many of whom were members of the military, with our arms around each other, tears streaming, singing along to Lee Greenwood's live performance of God Bless the USA. Moving stuff, I tell ya!
