We have taken the kids to several airshows where we have found seats outside so we didn't have to pay admission. Last year was our first year taking them in and sitting close to the flight line. This year we were a bit smarter than last. We brought our camping chairs and a blanket, my new Kobo, binoculars and a few games to play. The kids can only watch the sky for so long until they get antsy.
I love my camera and feel like I get pretty good pictures. However, I was having some serious lens envy at the show. There were tons of people that had huge lenses. At one point I got up to talk to one of the photographers who had an extra camera with another huge lens slung over his shoulder.
Next up: The Great Tennessee Airshow Pt. 2.
