We already know it's free to get in to see The USAF Thunderbirds and the Canadian Aerial Jet demonstration team but how do you get V.I.P. and what secret perks can you grab?

 

Carly and I had the opportunity to drop by Gowen Field and fly a $6 million A-10 Jet simulator in one of the most top secret places has yesterday.  No pictures or video were aloud for obvious reasons but it gave us a completely new insight as to what these brave men and women do.  We listened to stories of attacks on Afghanistan and other places and learned the ins and outs of some of their training regimen.

 

Unfortunately the A-10 simulator won't be available for the public on October 14 and 15 at the air show but there will be a lot of cool stuff for you to take advantage of including V.I.P. access and seating.
