There is so much to see and do here, this only scratches the surface - I missed the homebuilts, Fun Fly Zone, helicopters, Pioneer Airport, tethered balloons, drones, autogiros, seaplanes, and much, much more - I imagine that Jcarr will have a lot of pics of things I missed (and better quality, too), but here you go. Link to the first post:

Helio Courier - lousy photo, but I love these planes.  Incredible STOL performance.  Those leading edge slats drop automatically at low speeds, further reducing stall speed.

Howard H500.  Beautiful airplane, and big, too.  Only 22 were ever built, and there’s another one right behind this one.

Waco biplane in the airshow - Screamin’ Sasquatch.  Sports a P&W 985 radial - AND a GE CJ610 jet engine.  Weird to hear this little biplane making jet noises

Flagship Detroit DC-3.  Great guys showing this one - out of Nashville, I believe - I was waitlisted for a 6pm ride in this, but didn’t get on.

Bucker Jungmeister upside down, Beech 18 right side up.  The Jungmeister has only 160 HP, so aerobatics in it are slow-  which allows you take in the grace and beauty of what the pilot is doing more easily than the high powered aircraft, IMHO.  It also requires a lot of momentum management.
