I grew up on the flight line of Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome, New York and witnessed thousands of fighter planes, bombers, and transport aircraft flying right in front of my house. You would think that I could care less about watching them now but that is definitely not the case.

I still get goosebumps watching the Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels at airshows each year. If you are an airshow enthusiast and missed the opportunity to see the Air Force Thunderbirds last weekend in Chicago, you do have a chance to see another show this weekend.

The Navy Blue Angels will be performing in St. Joseph, Missouri as part of the Sound of Speed Air Show on both this Saturday, August 25 and this Sunday, August 26.

If you have never taken your family to one of these shows you really need to do so. It is a wonderful family activity not to miss. Your kids will remember it forever.
