The Eagle and the Viper demo flew out of nearby Cleveland
Hopkins International Airport (OH). In 1981, a Thunderbird T-38
ingested a bird while departing the airport after the show. The
plane crashed, killing the pilot. Since the accident, USAF demos
have been avoiding Burke Lakefront.

The author spent a week in Montreal for work and travelled a
dog leg on the way home to be able to attend the show. The
annual Cleveland National Air Show has a distinguished history
dating back over 40 years and its roots are the National Air Races,
held in Cleveland as far back as 1929. This report is based
on the sightings of Saturday only. The weather was absolutely
stunning, early morning low clouds disappeared rapidly, giving
room for clear skies with unlimited visibility. The east-west runway
(06L-24R) assured the sun was in the back during the fl ying
programme. Special thanks to Cleveland National Air Show
Promotions Coordinator, Ann M. Gynn.
