The main attraction, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, performed their hour-long F-18 show that dazzled the crowd.
The 70-member Fargo AirSho Committee partnered with the North Dakota Air National Guard 'Happy Hooligans' in putting on the show that took a year to develop.
Plans are already under way to have the next show in 2011. Proceeds from the Fargo Airsho benefit numerous charitable organizations within the community.
