timeline_2010-150The 2010 Air Show featured the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and some rain on Saturday. The Blues flew but folks were invited back on Sunday or Monday to view the show as General Admission patrons…and what a show they saw.

Military participation included the F/A-18F Super Hornet Demo (with a FU4-Corsair Legacy Flight), F-15 Strike Eagle Demo, C-17 Globemaster Demo and U.S. Army Golden Knights. The Red Eagles two-ship aerobatic team made their first Cleveland appearance and long time air show performers Gene Soucy/Teresa Stokes also appeared. WWII was represented with the B-17 Flying Fortress “Yankee Lady” and TORA 101. Plus lots of smoke/fire from Shockwave Jet Truck and Pyrotechnics. Unique ground displays included the FAA’s vintage DC3 N34.

Cleveland was also one of 20 cities selected to host a Navy Week leading up to the Air Show giving area residents an opportunity to meet some of the Navy’s Sailors and learn about the Navy’s critical mission and its broad-ranging capabilities.
