Tickets are still being counted but it is estimated that over 30,000 people turned out for Rockford Air Fest 2005. With the success airport officials are already making moves for next year.
A high profile formation team could bring thousands more to RFD. Today the Rockford Airport Authority met to recap how this years show went.
And now that they have one under their belt they will prepare for improvements next year. Though most things did go off smoothly this year, there were a few snags.
The most obvious of which was a parking problem Friday night as people tried to leave. Next year there will be more busses ready to transport thousands of people from the airport, back to their cars.
