Hello all

I think people that only live in or used to live in Seattle could answer this question!

Does anybody know why the air show at Snohomish County (Paine field) was cancelled. I remember seeing the Thunderbirds and the Stealth fight there a few years. It was a very big show I didn't think it would be cancelled. Does anybody know if it is going to come back?

The group that ran it (the Jaycees? Kiwanis?) ran out of money and couldn't get it going again. They racked up some big bills for the setup, cleanup, and operation of the airshow, and couldn't find any way to get it paid for, so they stopped doing it. I think it's been at least 10 or more years since they had one there, but it was a great show when it was going.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
