The phenomenon of the air show is interesting for a number of reasons. Not only is it a living artifact from Cold War-era military might and national pride, it serves as a cultural focal point for war mongering. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the experience of the event and am not immune to the power represented. The kid in me still thinks jets are cool.
