EL PASO - Amigo-go-go...

The high-flying action of the Amigo Airsho has become a tradition for countless El Pasoans with their eye to the sky.

"I've always loved the Airsho since I was a young boy and I've always tried to come every single year and there's never a dull moment."

This year... a jet-powered school bus and a fast-rope demonstration by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection wowed the crowd... along with this stunt where a woman stands on top of a plane flown by her husband.

"It's good for the community to get out. Gets you a chance to get out of the house and get some fresh air."

For 29 years... the Airsho has brought both community and family together.

"It's fun to walk around, yeah. We both have a good time and as you can see he's watching the planes over here and it's a lot of fun just to be together."

While others use the event to take their education of the military and aviation to new heights.

"This gives a chance for people to come onto post and get to see some of the vehicles and airplanes that our military use...just get a better exposure to what the army does."
