Retired Air Force mechanic Mark Goldstom, 51, took his 14 year-old son to see the air show last year but spent Monday watching the parade from a lawn chair downtown.
“You don’t have the airplanes, the smell and things that you would at an airshow, but it’s still great,” he said.
Goldstom was more disturbed about the reason the air show was canceled this year.
“In my opinion, they shouldn’t cut any military or vet spending,” he said. “That’s the last thing they should cut.”
