Selfridge features a north-south main runway and the public was invited to the eastside of this runway. The static display was situated at the huge apron of 107th FS on the southeast part of which also acted as a flightline. The main flightline was on the opposite site of the runway, home of 93rd ARS (KC-135R) and 171st AS (C-130E), the latter singing its swansong during the show, with their last Hercules present. Apart from Friday, photography of the static was simply impossible, as no fences were present. The flight demonstrations already took off in the morning, with good photographic opportunities. After noon, backlight became a factor. One of the highlights of the show was the display by four Cobras of the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation’s Sky Soldiers team.
