    One of the most popular events in Tampa is the annual MacDill airshow. This year, AirFest is gearing up for March 22 and 23 at MacDill Air Force Base located in south Tampa. The USAF Thunderbirds will be doing their aerial show plus there's a lineup of performers, demos, jump team and vintage aircraft. Best of all, the event is free! Thousands attend. Once parking on the base is full, you'll need to have an alternate plan. Best option is to park where it's allowed and take a bus - which is allowed on the base to unload passengers - or a taxi -you'll be dropped off at the gate and walk the rest of the way. Bring plenty of water, sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat.

    MacDill AirFest advice

    I had a chance to attend the show back in 2012. I had a great time but when it came time for the Blue Angels to perform I couldn't get good pictures of them because the sun was shinning in the wrong place so all my photos had a backlit. My advice is to pick a good spot to avoid a bad sun angle to shoot the entire show.
