AIRCRAFT:
  • Do not touch or climb on any aircraft unless you're invited to do so by the aircrew.
  • Remember that trash can be sucked up into the aircraft engines, damaging the aircraft and endangering the pilot's life. Please keep the flightline litter-free by using the trash receptacles provided for your convenience.
  • Trip hazards are everywhere. Watch for tent ropes and aircraft tie-down chains.
  • Observe all signs, including the ones that say "do not touch."
FIRST AID:
  • Drink plenty of fluids, especially if the day is a sunny, warm, summer day.
  • Apply sunscreen often, especially to small children. Temperatures on the flightline typically are higher than normal. Bring a hat to protect the top of your head.
  • Take time out to rest during the day. With the heat and excitement, you could become fatigued.
  • A first aid tent will be set up inside our maintenance building. If you are on the flightline and looking at the air show entrance it is the building to the right. Look for the Red Cross.
