FLORIDA FLYBY

What draws more than 4 million people to the beaches of Florida each year? No, it’s not spring break. It’s the McDONALD’S AIR & SEA SHOW in Ft. Lauderdale, said to be one of the world’s largest spectator events. What’s all the fuss about? For one, there’re the spectacular demonstrations by the country’s top military and civilian performers, including the precision parachute team, the Golden Knights. Then there are the interactive exhibits, where you can take the controls of an Apache helicopter flight simulator and test your muscles on the Army’s rock wall. As if that’s not enough, the festivities include fireworks, concerts, and much, much more, so be sure to be on hand May 3-4. For details, call (954) 527-5600 or visit www.airseashow.com.
