Andrews Air Force Base Airshow

Andrews Air Force Base Airshow

Several people have asked about the big military airshow at Andrews Air
Force Base in Maryland.  The show is this weekend, and the expected
attendance exceeds half a million(!).  Over 400,000 attended last year,
and the weather was lousy.  It's beautiful weather this year, and they
expect folks to flock to the show.  Even in previous years, massive
traffic jams resulted, so if you come, come early and be prepared to wait
around a lot.  

The show is 9am to 4:30pm today and Saturday.  It will feature the Blue
Angels at 3:07pm Friday and 1:15pm Saturday, the Golden Knights army
parachute guys at 1:12 Friday and noon Saturday, flybys by F-16s, F-14s,
AV-8s, and HH-65 helos.  Current and historical aircraft are also on
static (non-flying) display.   Parking and admission are free.  Good luck.
