There were a few more flybys:
There was the only one canvas winded plane on display:
Rob and I took a free Ferris-Wheel ride to catch a view of tree tops.
There were a few people in vintage costumes and some entertainment.
There were a few parachute jumping demos.
The excitement of the day was when one jumper miss-calculated the tree clearance because he was toting a large weighted flag. He was looking beautiful coming down with the National Anthem playing over the loud-speakers.
But, the flag caught on the trees, throwing him into a crash landing.
Luckily, he only received a gash on his cheek.
Several people quickly climbed up the tree to retrieve the flag, and the excitement was over.
This was the poster from the 1910 event which ran for 10 days.
This poster was from the 1st world aviation event which took place in France the year before.
The best laugh of the day was when Rob and I were sitting in the shade listening to the key-note speaker who was thanking the crowd for attending. There were over 200,000 visitors at the 1910 event and this one looked rather thin by comparison, so I leaned over to Rob and said, "Doesn't seem like much of a turn-out." And with out skipping a beat, he said, "The rest of them couldn't find it."
