That's not flying, that's just falling with style.~ Well in this case it is

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, The RI Air Show is down at Quonset.

I almost forgot about it, until Kyle mentioned it to me this morning.  The boys had a great time looking at all of the planes, jets, and helicopters.  It was amazing to see helicopters do loop de loops.  And they even got to go up onto and into a couple of planes. Towards the back, be weary.  Most things are free, including parking- though they are requesting a $10 donation to help Hasbro Children's Hospital.  However there were some entrance fees to go into a few of the copters and planes- just a few dollars but keep that in mind.  Channel 10 was there giving out some stuff, as well as Geico, RIPTA and others.  All in all, "a wonderful day" per the Mudge and Boog.
Air Show opens at 9 am, show starts at 10.  Go RI Air Show for more details.

Couple of things to note:
  • Bring ear plugs/headphones, it gets loud
  • Bring sunscreen
  • Go early, it gets hot quickly as the sun reflects off the tar mat
  • If you have little ones, bring a wagon or stroller- best thing I did today
  • Don't forget a camera
  • No coolers allowed, but they let in the kids' lunch soft lunch box with water bottles and snacks
  • AND DON'T FORGET WHERE YOU PARKED!!! Make note of a visual marker of some sort or you will be lost for hours!
If you are lucky, this will happen to you...
