This was probably one of the most laid back but fun encounters I have had with Warbirds. Usually airport authority or when on a military base, the cordons will be maintained at all times. Except for the planes blocked off for filming; the ramp area with the Texans and the B-25J Killer 'B' was open. Of course when the folks with the planes or the ramp crew asked people to move, the people did. Everything was perfect including the weather.
After the parade fly over the B-25s went to visit the air fields used by the Raiders to train in 1942. If you paid $425 you got a chance to ride in one of the B-25s, be part of the flyover, and the visit. It was sorely tempting to fork over the money.
