Frequently asked questions:
**Are Saturday and Sunday the same show?
There will be minor differences, but the majority of the show will be similar.
**Who is performing when? Will there be a schedule?

We will not release a schedule. Here's an example of why:
Your favorite performer is slotted for 2 p.m. You plan to get to the air show at 1 p.m. Alas, two acts scheduled to perform prior have mechanical issues and now they've been bumped up and your favorite performer has been bumped back... to noon. You arrive at 1 p.m., having missed them.

We definitely don't want this to happen to you, and with so many moving parts (puns!), our schedule must allow for a vast amount of flexibility; to release a schedule would surely work against your plans.

**What kind of ID do I need to bring?
None, this is an open house event. However, safety and security are our top priority, so we reserve the right to change this at any time; follow our page for the latest updates. Understand that ALL hand-carried items are subject to search, for your protection.
