The Alextremo air show was held over the Acapulco Bay. The best place 
to spot and take pictures was the central point of the bay, near the 
hotels and on the beach. The best option was probably to take a room 
on one the highest floors of the hotels with bay view, although backlight 
was a factor during parts of the show. At the airport, access to all 
aircraft was free of obstacles, except for the F-16s and A-10s that were 
at the other side of the public fence, but with a good chance to take 
pictures. Again, at the airport sometimes you found the sun at the back 
of the aircraft, but in most of the cases the light on your side. The 
access fee for the airport static display was about 200 pesos and the 
air show over the bay was free.
