This all-color photo-journal of Hildebrandt's ultimate summer road trip presents spectacular imagery gathered at more than 15 aviation events ranging from small local airport events to the multi-million dollar EAA fly-in at Oshkosh. As he crisscrosses North America in search of the quintessential air show, Hildebrandt puts enthusiasts in the cockpits with the nation's top aviators and renowned flying teams like the Red Baron Pizza Squadron, the Blue Angels, and a variety of other military demo acts.
