Eyes On The Skies
"It might be better if it's not super sunny and, you know, ninety degrees; it might be better if it's a little cooler and hazy," said Columbia resident Michelle Mountjoy.
Police say parking, however, could be a problem.
"Well, if it rains on Saturday and Sunday, the days of the air show, it means that we will have close a lot of the fields that are around here for people who are driving," said Annette Sanders, event spokesperson.
"Now, we have a big grassy area, it's a big open grassy area, so if we have a lot of rain, it's just going to be very difficult to park your cars on there," said Sgt. Timothy Moriarity, Columbia Police Department.
"We have always suggested that the best way to get here anyway is to use the convenient shuttle buses," said Sanders.
Parking is free at all locations, but the shuttle buses cost two dollars per person. The shuttles will run all day from both the MU Hearnes Center and the Jefferson City airport.
Rain or no rain, the airshow will offer something new called the Virtual Army Experience, and it provides everyone with a taste of what its like in Iraq.
"You don't really know what to expect all of the sudden cars started shaking and on the screen you could see it moving and then all of sudden bombs started going off in front of us and underneath of us," said Mountjoy.
The virtual thrill is open to everyone twelve and older. It all begins at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow, rain or shine.
