    Hi everyone,

    I'm sitting here at work daydreaming of an airshow vacation. We have warbirds over monroe here locally in Charlotte but the variety is slim. So that got me wondering if I were going to travel where in the world would the best air show be? I was thinking maybe a trip to the UK for the flying legends show. This would also allow me to visit Snetterton Heath air field where my grandfather was stationed. I believe it's a motorcycle track now. Airfare would be taken care of with miles but I'm sure between lodging and everything I'd still be looking at a couple grand.

    My other thought is the planes of fame airshow in Chino. Would be cheaper and not sure if I would be missing out on anything other than lots more variety of the British aircraft. Theres also Oshkosh which seems to have a lot of cool classes that you can take if you stay the week.

    What do you guys think?

    EDIT TO ADD: I forgot to mention the show needs to have a B17.

    My choice would be Oshkosh with Chino a close second. Chino does have really nice museum in two sections. How ever as I live in Fresno, Chino is only a few hours away from where I live.

    wow surprised Oshkosh is pulling out ahead. I could probably drive it and make a nice road trip out of it. I've never been to Chicago or Indianapolis. Would be cheaper to drive as well and could prob drop the flight money on a B17 flight :twisted:
