I was there as well Danlauz. I had a schedule of what was supposed to fly, and I was sorely disappointed at how many no-shows there were. The F-22, V-22, B-2, B-52, F-117, Apache and many others were on the list and never made it.

Oshkosh is America's 'biggest' show, but if I was going to look for the biggest military style shows my picks would definitely include:

Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton, OH in July of each year
Edwards AFB
Nellis AFB
Miramar NAS
Oceana NAS

And to answer your other question, the Ft. Lauderdale show is always on the first weekend in May of each year.
