    I thought those planes were pretty :) but my husband showed a real interest. Glad you liked not only the show but also the waitresses.:))

    The A-10 is a fav among every plane enthusiast I've talked to. Ah, Peoria....you have to know it to love it, I think.

    The town itself was not nice, but that was 43 years ago. I have lived here for 13 years, a job brought me over. People are often facinated with my accent. I see I just missed the Derby.

    Hey Davey! Gr8 airshows shots & good tips-$75 seems steep for pet fee, tho. They now have "Mutt Muffs" to protect a dog's hearing around aircraft noise. Your cute pooch would take right to a smaller size. All I remember of Peoria is the Distillery. Doug
