I wish I could go to the Paris Air Show or Farnborough (spelling?). Those are two big airshows I read & hear about. Is there anything like that in the US? I know of Oshkosh but that is mainly GA aircrafts, not airliners. I have being to a few air shows around town but they mostly display USAF aircraft. Maybe, just maybe I will win the lottery some day...

James that may be true, thats what you read about in the airliner papers, but there is no expirence like flying into LAL or OSH on Wedesday, you will never see so many aircraft in the sky.
I know myself I love the airshows at Sun n Fun and Oshkosh because it's always diffrent civilian acts. While I goto a number of airshows around FL that feature the bigname civilian and the various military acts, they get old becasue I have seen the act dozens of times.
I know that the USAF fighter demo teams preform the exact same act, whether the demo aircraft is a F-16 or an F-15. While the Blue Angels and Thundersbird rarely change their act too.
