Torrential rains turned to sunny skies for EAA AirVenture 2010, drying up the soaked ground that once threatened to limit much of the parking available for the anticipated arrival of droves of aircraft. A cavalcade of DC-3s flew in to start the festivities at the world's largest airshow, and exhibits included warbirds, seaplanes, LSA, and large cargo jets of days past. A new Warbird Lane was dedicated for future shows, and Aeroshell Square opened to the public, who gazed upon new aircraft, as well as aircraft of yore. Exciting meet and greets with the greatest airshow performers in the world, an appearance by the Goodyear Blimp, and a salute to veterans wowed spectators throughout the week.
