However, all the waiting was worth it. Over 75 Mustangs!!! What a show, truly once in a life-time! The show started on both days at 9:00 a.m. and lasted all day until 5:00 p.m.

Some of the participants were:

The highlight of the show was to see so many Mustangs all at once as static displays and to see most of them fly during the air show.
