Q: What is the best day to come as a spectator?

A: Saturday is usually best because more pilots can make it and we do a noon airplane line-up so you can get up-close to the planes and pilots. Friday and Sunday may have fewer pilots but crowds are also lighter and there is still a lot of flying going on. Sunday pilots tend to pack up and start heading home around 12pm or so.
