It was closed when the aircraft started flying which was between 11:00 and 14:00. The EF F-16 had a special light blue colour scheme with the old WWII code N5-A.

For an entrance fee of 20 dollars you got a mix of old and new aircraft. The Canadian Snowbirds were also present but not logged. Very heavy rain on Friday flooded some parts of the static area. The humidity was at a record high and the combination with high temperatures meant that a lot of sweating could not be avoided. It was the last year that the 111th FS could be seen with their F-16s. Next year they will be replaced by UAVs. The four commander F-16s did formation flying and low passes with the New York aircraft acting as photo mount.
