    yea i did the same thing last year too. Waited all day and never run. The f18 was pretty awesome though. But I got the tickets for free so o well. I saw the planes practicing over lake st. clair all week prior to the race. That was cool just watching them practice. The sound coming out of the is amazing. They sound like a mix of nascar and indy cars. And even though they are 1000 feet above you when practicing over the lake they are just as loud as a race car.

Did you guys see that there was a crash yesterday. Idk how much you guys know about the pilots but peter besenyei crashed in some farmfield in canada after he had motor issues. I heard that the plane fliped and luckily he just walked away with bruises.

    haha i missed that. I showed up just as the f18 did his last 2 passes and its so hard just to idle around in the river for that long. were you on the belle isle side of the river or ambassador bridge side. I was on the belle isle side. I left before planes even started to fly. I waited 15-20 min after the f18 and said screw it. I raced a few boats in the river and still no planes and left. I needed someone to tie off to.
