2008 Cleveland National Air Show

Dear Air Show Fan and Supporter:

Good weather and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will greet you this weekend at the 2008 Cleveland National Air Show presented by Discount Drug Mart - Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Burke Lakefront Airport in downtown Cleveland.

Check out all the details at

We're thrilled to be hosting the Navy's precision jet team, which isn't scheduled to fly within a few hundred miles of here this year. They make a great finale to cap off each day of five-plus hours of flying.

The on-the-ground aviation amusement park will be packed too - with one of the world's largest planes, the C-5 Galaxy, and its modern predecessor, C-17, plus the mid-air refueling plane, KC-135 on the tarmac plus 40 more planes, activities and interaction.

Advance general admission tickets still can be purchased at Discount Drug Mart locations-save $2 off gate admission. General admission adults are $21, children ages 6-11 are $14 and children 5 and younger are free.

Box seating will be available on-site for a $10 upgrade to your general admission ticket. Once inside the gate, you can go to an upgrade booth to purchase a seat.

On-site parking is available for $12 per car. RVs are NOT permitted on-site.

For full details on how to make the most of your visit, directions, etc. to the Cleveland National Air Show, just go to

And wear your aviation garb with pride - a lucky Air Show fan will be selected as "Fan of the Day" and given a special gift certificate to Gillespie's Map Room - and have their name announced as "Air Show Fan of the Day." An Air Show staff member will be on the look out all three days.

Scheduling note:The same acts are scheduled to fly all three days-with the flying starting about 10:45 a.m. Saturday and Monday, and about 10 a.m. Sunday.
