RM Airshow soars in its first outing


Saturday's Rancho Murieta Airshow marked Armed Forces Day and it marked the return of air shows to Rancho Murieta, once known for them. The day drew hundreds of spectators, who enjoyed dozens of aircraft, from giant military craft to helicopters and small personal planes painted gorgeous colors.  Overhead, there were formation flights and spectacular aerobatics. Did we mention the food?  Organizers say it will return next year. We'll have a video look at the show Monday morning.
