    Yep, and don't count on being able to depart much past noon. They never tell us in advance when they're going to close the field for some pre-airshow demonstration.

    Or you can volunteer to work crowd control in Vintage. You can sit in front of the people in the VIP area and we provide water, gatorade, and mystery meat sandwiches and other snacks.

    They've also reconfigured the South 40 GAC and far south Vintage areas (not that those showed up on last years map but maybe they'll make it bigger).

    Used to be that the IPC was a nice table in the old PTS. The ACS in its attempt to be more comprehensive lacks a lot of the convenience of the old book.
