Airshow Draws Spectators On And Off Base

Airshow Draws Spectators On And Off Base
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Air Show attendees may have been hiding under a wing or behind an umbrella, but there was quite a crowd at the Sioux Falls Airshow this weekend.

They aren't taking any counts of how many people there on the ground, but the Blue Angels have been to enough Airshows to get a good number from the skies.

"Over 100,000 is what the Blue Angels have been telling us," Airshow Co-Chairman Craig Hagen said.

This city-wide event attracted a city's worth of attendees. One of those is Steve Sprecher.

"Looks like a lot of people here today [Sunday]. A lot of people coming and going," Sprecher said.

His last Airshow visit was ten years ago, when he was a part of the Air Guard. He's back this year with his wife, kids and grandchildren. He's noticed what a difference a decade makes.

"We've been out going through the airplanes and taking part in seeing how things have changed over the years; lots of changes," Sprecher said.

But those on base aren't the only spectators Airshow officials are counting in their numbers.

"What we're finding out, for the people [watching] around the base, outside the gate, probably much greater than we've had in the past," Hagen said. 

On Sunday the base was a little warmer than on Saturday. Some people sought shade under trees and in parking lots. But all together, the Airshow committee believes totals are level with 2009's attendance.
