A large contingent of USN and USMC aircraft and excellent light conditions made it well worth a visit. The static was located on the secondary runway and spectators could watch the show from the west/southwest side of the main runway. On Friday, gates opened at 05.00PM, allowing pictures of some late arrivals with beautiful late afternoon light. The actual air demo started at 07.00PM and featured the USAF and USN East Coast Demo Teams, as well as the US Jet Team flying three Fouga Magisters. Around sunset, the US Army Special Forces Black Daggers and the Golden Knights made their jumps into the night. Various demonstrations of light aircraft, as well as fireworks and night jumps followed, concluding the air show 10.00PM. On Saturday the airfield was open from 10.00 AM till 04.00PM, with the aerial demonstrations taking place after noon.
