79-0433 (cn 48200) I spent 2-3 hours standing under this one avoiding the waves of rain which soaked the air show all day. Note the long line of people waiting to check out the interior. The wait time rivaled those found to get on some of the rides at Cedar Point.

85-0028 / 50028 (cn 48233) Finishing its landing roll on runway 06L, this KC-10 was in Cleveland to support the USAF Thunderbirds, two of which are visible beneath the tail parked over at NASA. The rusted conical structure behind the aircraft was one of NASA's cold war era wind tunnels which has since been dismantled, changing the Hopkins landscape forever.
