Well it is finally the last weekend of October and aviation enthusiasts from across the nation have come to Florida’s Space Coast for the 2010 Cocoa Beach Air Show. With demonstrations that include the F-15, F-18 and F-22 as well as the C-17 – the military is well represented. To highlight this, the Thunderbirds will be burning the blue skies red as parachutists and civilian performers show their stuff in the clouds and waters of beautiful Cocoa Beach, Florida. While the final flight of the space shuttle Discovery has slipped a day, it is still just a day after the air show’s end – worth the wait.
