National Air Tour 2003 comes to Wichita

The National Air Tour used to be an annual event which airplanes goes all around the U.S. The tour started from 1925 but ended 1931 due to the great depression. In 2003, they decided to revive the tradition with using the old route they used to fly. They had a public viewing day on 2003/09/13 at Jabara Airport at Wichita, KS so I have been there. The weather was unfortunately rainy all the time, but I get to see some of the planes which I can only see in museums or pictures. (I donated $3.00 since they say it is appreciated!)
