Montrose said even a budget breakthrough in the next few days would be unlikely to save the Airfest, given the months of planning required.
BS. The show is April 6 ... about four weeks away. Planning should be 98% complete by now.

Fighter jets burn through fuel at an exorbitant cost. I have the solution.. CHARGE ADMISSION. People WILL pay to go to an airshow. They are hardcore fans and usually repeat customers (This also keeps the riffraff out). Charge admission, with funds covering fuel costs. Done.

Indeed. They act like they're planning this from scratch, rather than an annual event.

Dust off the 2012 plan (which I'm guessing bears shocking similarities to the 2011 and 2010 plans), and have folks on standby in the event the funding gets turned back on.

Honestly, I couldn't give a fig if the show is held or not, and certainly the DOD budget, like every component of the fedgov, can handle some substantive cuts, but this is just more of the apocalyptic gnashing of teeth...
