Sky High in Chile – Day 8

With over 30,000 people expected to attend the first public day of FIDAE, expectations were high for everyone. FIDAE only happens once every two years and is an air expo that is fast moving to the top.  The vendors are recognizing this and flooding the conference halls, and the ramp is filled with aircraft.

And in addition to the business aspect of the air expo, there is the entertainment.  That is where the Air National Guard’s Band of the Central States comes in.  They performed over the weekend and rocked the crowds.
