Saw it last year... got cold and rainy, but seeing the F22 for the first time--- WOW!! totally worth it.

Erase this thread before my husband reads. He is going to get pissed that I booked his tickets and he is just flying in and right back out and will miss the show... ;)

Must say - I TOTALLY would have been flying with him to Chicago and would have stayed for the show had we seen this thread BEFORE purchasing his ticket :( We went to the air show in Utah and saw the F22's a few years ago. We took our prosumer video cameras and got some AMAZING footage of it all. Honestly, the raptors are unbelievable what they can do. If you get the chance, definitely take it! Well worth the time!

I agree with the Raptors. Just attended the Dayton Airshow last weekend and man seeing that Raptor was just incredible.


P.s: The Northwest 757 making emergency landing was neat as well.
