Ticket and parking information:
This air show is Idaho’s largest 2-day gathering of historic war planes from across the country. We watched the planes fly and were able to see them up close. The announcers were very knowledgeable about the planes, their history, the importance of these planes and pilots to our country, with interesting and amusing facts in their announcements throughout the day.
Special guest speaker, Bob Cardin, was the project manager for the recovery of the P-38 Lightning Glacier Girl that crash-landed in Greenland in July,1942 and was buried under 268 of ice. He was also involved in her restoration, which took 10 years.
People's dress sometimes reflected the era of these historic airplanes.
