    I was just wondering if anyone was coming down here for Thunder and if they are then we could meet up or something.

    oh, my bad. Thunder Over Louisville is the biggest Air Show followed by Firework show in the world. It kicks off the start of Derby Season. Its extremly fun, the air show runs throughout the day then it is followed by the firework show. Its a great event and fun as all get out. Booths are set up to buy things and the planes fly overhead all day. They have F-15's and the Stealth and thats just a VERY small portion. After the Air Show is over the fireworks begin when its dark enough. Thats the good part. The fireworks go for about 45 min. Just when you think its over they hit you with a 20 min Grand Fanally that is a sight to see. You cant really explain it. Put it this way, it looks like its 12 in the afternoon when they are going off. Well Ive explained it as best as I can but its really a fantastic experience.

    I agree - Thunder over Louisville is awesome. I'm from KY and went to college at UofL, so most of what I remember was viewed through a liquor-induced haze, but the fireworks are by far the best I've ever seen. You can see them from both sides of the river and miles away! The radio stations put music to it - and almost every year there is some flavor of Star Wars music used! It is best viewed right on the river-side with the many thousands of other folks!

    We could also go to the Dayton Air Show. You go to the Dayton Air Museum and the Air show. That's one of my favorites.

    That date is Saturday April 12th. The air show starts at 3pm and the fireworks start at 9:30pm. Its a free show so all you have to do is show up. The schedules arent out yet so when they are released I will put one on here.

    Some of us from the fan force down here in Louisville are talking about going. If you you would want to meet with us you're more than welcome. Thunder is always a big show. Best of all it is free minus what food and drinks you buy. t5o steal a phrase from Bob Barker "Comon' Down"

    With so many different shows being talked about lately, I created a thread for everyone to post the show information (time, dates, cost, et.) so it will be a little more organized. Let's try to keep that one for information only & we can talk about airshows here. :D


    Speaking of shows, can't forget the Grandaddy of em all. The Oshkosh airshow in Oshkosh, WI is a week (2 weeks?) long event. I've always wanted to attend but never had the chance. If someone comes across the info, please post it.

    If I've read all the posts right. Thunder will be the first on the schedule. How many of us are interested in going down as a group? I thought maybe try to hook up with the Louisville group so I thought I'd try planning now to be able to coordinate with them.
