If you are into aviation, this is one of your mecca's. One of the places you "must see", at least once in your life. A bucket list item, the Races is the other.

If you like airplanes this is the place to go. Stunts shows, fast planes, breathtaking event. You can walk through an area where they have military planes that you can walk through, wonderful food, vendors and merchandise.
