    The units that serve at an airshow pay for their fuel and maintenance. They account for that as public relations expenses--the military accounts for this expense all the time (it's recruiting too). The overall airshow is NOT paid for by the military. Crashes? Those are few and far in between. God forbid any accidents at any airshow. I have loved airshows since I was a kid. But, following your logic--there should be no more car shows, air shows, horse shows, or marbles shows because someone might get hurt. Get real. Read the NTSB accident database on air show accidents. Yes, accidents do happen, but not at every air show, as you believe. Now what Scooter?

    bigfruitbasket, who pays for the high dollar jet fuel, wear and tear on 50 million dollar(or more)jets.And God forbid that one crashes. I dont believe that the hot dogs and Polish sausages, and drinks sold at the show will quite pay for it all.So why don't you explain WHO DOES pay for it.

    Mr. T, give it a break. Airshows are usually not paid for by the military. Please find another drum to beat.

    Hopefully, the Obama administration will not have gutted the military so badly that they can't afford to put on the airshow by then.
