Hawaii Mom Blog: The Biggest Little Airshow

The Biggest Little Airshow

A few weekends ago we took the boys to The Biggest Little Airshow on Ford Island.

We arrived before the show was to start, so we toured the grounds and in Hangar 79 to look at all the helicopters and fighter planes.

At 10am the show was to begin with the Color Guard and Military Aircraft Flyover.
I was hoping there would be more than one aircraft flying around, but it was just one that flew, and only for a few seconds.

Then the emcee announced that the remote control airshow would be starting in an hour, at 11am.

I'm not sure why they left such a huge gap in time, especially knowing there would be lots of families with restless kids, but fortunately, lots of owners were practicing with their models and some owners even did some pre-shows before the "real" show started at 11am, which really helped to pass the time.

It was really neat to see what the remote control airplanes could do, and although we did see one crash in the water, overall the parts of the show that we did watch were pretty amazing!

A couple of the planes participated in candy bombings.
My boys didn't participate in trying to get any candy in the candy bombings, which was a good thing, because there were sooooo many kids, and sooooo little candy being dropped, that I'm sure they would've gotten trampled on!
The airshow continued throughout the afternoon, and there was also a concert, which we didn't stay for.

There were a few food booths at the airshow, but we ended up not getting food from any of them.

We all enjoyed The Biggest Little Airshow--seeing planes big and small, and it was great for the family to go and experience something we never have before!


  1. How cool that would have been to go to. Planes, etc just fascinate me. :)

  2. That looked like fun -- especially for boys!

  3. That looks like a lot of fun! I haven't been to an air show in a long time. It would also be neat to go to a remote control airplane show too. I never knew those existed until now. Thanks for sharing!
