Wear sunscreen and sunglasses, take a hat, wear comfortable shoes. This sounds like common sense but you'll be amazed at how much walking you'll do in the sun. Some shows will provide shade tents and some fans prefer the shade of the wing of a C-5. Whatever your choice, come prepared to be in the elements. Check the local weather forecast. Listen to the local weather but don't let a little rain dissuade you from attending a show. Shows will work around the weather and there are many acts that continue in overcast skies or light rain. So, you may pack an umbrella alongside that sunscreen! Come early for static photos If you're looking to capture images of the aircraft on static display, you'll want to arrive as soon as the gates open to avoid people milling through your shot. Many photographers will also wait until after the show to avoid traffic and capture a softer light.
