Apparently, funding is still a problem, as the entrance fee was a staggering $32.50! Just imagine having paid this fee only to find out that the flying displays for Saturday were cancelled because of heavy rain and a low cloud base. The second day of the show was blessed with good weather conditions, allowing the warbirds to show off their great shapes and sounds. Unfortunately, the flying display could only be watched with backlight as the public is situated to the north side of the runway and the south side of the airfield is closed off completely.
