The annual Labor Day Weekend Cleveland Airshow held at Burke Lakefront Airport was a another can't miss show. The US Navy Blue Angels were the headline act this year and put on their usual outstanding flying to keep the eyes of the crowd glued to the skies. The other military performers were the USAF F-15 Strike Eagle Demo, USN Super Hornet Demo, the USN Legacy Flight and. search and rescue demostration by the US Coast Guard.

Some of the planes on static display were Canadian Air Force CF-18's, DC-3 from the FAA, Boeing 737 from Continental Airlines, US Army C27J, USAF A-10's Thunderbolt II's, USAF C-17, US Navy and Marine Helicopters, two planes from FedEx and many civilian plane's.

The warbirds were represented by the B-17 Flying Fortress "Yankee Lady", USN F-4U Corsair and Tora 101 a Japanese A6M Zero replica which demonstrated a WW II dogfight with the Corsair and B-17.

On the civilian performers were Metro Life Flight Helicopters, Gene Soucey, Teresa Stokes, The Red Eagle Air Sports, and Shockwave.

This show gets a 8 ratings as everything was planned for and well run for a show this size. Parking was close to the event, enough bathroom facilities for the crowd size, and lots of food vendors with a variety to please everyone with an appetite.

Add in a search and rescue demostration by the US Coast Guard to the acts from this show too.
