For that year’s show this usually sleepy airport northeast of Portsmouth in Minford, Ohio, had snagged a jet aerobatic team that required a 1,500-foot clear zone on either side of the aerobatic show line, an area devoid of all humans except approved, “waivered” airshow people. This was no problem for the spectator area on the terminal ramp west of the runway, but a road and a handful of houses on the east side of the field fell within the restricted area. Don had assured the FSDO that “airshow personnel have addressed the problem.” (How can I even write that drivel?) The sheriff had agreed to close the road, and Don himself had met with the homeowners, who would vacate their properties during the show on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. It was, after all, the biggest event of the summer — heck, of the year — in Scioto County. Well, right behind Roy Rogers Days.
