Sun ’n Fun airshow wows crowds

April 11, 2013

Pilots nationwide and spectators from the Lakeland, Fla., area flocked to the Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In & Expo in anticipation of the daily airshows and other happenings at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. The daily airshows are shorter this year to accommodate more fly-in traffic and make up for the cancellation of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds’ appearance because of sequestration. Still, the airshow lineup was packed with 16 acts listed for April 10. Visitors were treated to formation flights, warbird acts, wing walking, and more.
