Dayton Air Show parking lots in good shape so far this year

Dayton Air Show parking lots in good shape so far this year

The organizers of the 2018 Vectren Dayton Air Show say with all the rain this week, they do not want a repeat of the mess from years in the past.

All of the mud has caused problems in the past years, causing vehicles to get stuck and having to be pulled out of the muddy parking lot. 

Roger Doctor, the air show’s public safety director, admits he has underestimated the mud before, but this year he’ll actually be sending drivers to test out the ground in the morning before the show. If it’s too muddy, they have a back-up plan where drivers will park on the other side of the airport, which has room for 6,000 vehicles all on pavement.

“I’m just sure we’re going to have a much smoother time than we did last year. We’ve got a great plan. It’s a thorough plan. And lots of buses, that’s the big thing. They have to be able to move a lot of people in a very short amount of time,” said Doctor. 

Additionally, electronic signs will reflect any changes to the Dayton Air Show, but so far the lots are in good shape.
