Was at an air show at Duxford, U.K. a few years back. Great show that featured a South African 747 and a Harrier and many private classics. How much does it cost to put on such a show? It was a fantastic expierience.

Cameras shoot pictures. Guns shoot people. They have the guns.

Generally the main acts are the ones who get paid. Other planes and people like private planes is just time donated. Pay varies on the aggreement between the pilot/company and the company orginizing the airshow. However if the air show pilot does not have a commercial license, they can't make profit. (in FAA rules) However I believe all they can get is the cost of fuel.

Interesting read from the USAF Thunderbirds site:


Obviously, the 'Demonstration Fee' ($6,000 oer show IIRC) is more of a token than an attempt to cover actual costs. The document covers the responsibilities of the promoter for everything from team hotel rooms and rental cars to the specs for the smoke oil.
