For some reason the airshow at NAS Pensacola is always on a Friday and Saturday and since flight training has to continue no matter what, a drive to Pensacola Regional airport is worth the while to catch some operational activities. The usual flight line car park was closed this year as they had begun to build sun shelters. This meant the parking was chaos! The sun shelters were not the usual steel ones and one can only hope they were temporary! The visiting aircraft also seems down and it looked like the museum dragged out a few extra aircraft! Although not really part of the show, the list below gives a good idea what could have been seen.
