The days of large air shows featuring modern aircraft and multiple demo teams appear to be over here and the main focus is now on the superb museum collection and visiting local warbirds, contributing to a relaxed atmosphere. The abovementioned aircraft all flew from the main museum area, visiting cargo aircraft at the rest of the airport were not noted. Aircraft preserved inside the museum are omitted from this report. The public was situated south of the runway, allowing good photographic opportunities of the flying demonstrations.
