The Westover Airshow Was this last weekend. Getting in was a nightmare with a 50 minutes Queue to enter. Once inside things were better an amazing Static collection and the air acts were top notch.

Plymouth air show had some weather to deal with but was overall a great show. I brought my Nephew to his first air show for his birthday. Great memories

I also added anew air show in Beverly Mass and another stop to the Wings of Freedom tour in Laconia, NH.
