Nearly 75,000 here for air show
Thunder on the Rock had even more visitors than originally thought.
Whidbey Island Naval Air Station officials report that 25,000 people visited the base for Saturdays airshow, while an additional 49,000 visitors attended Sunday.
The naval air stations public affairs office phoned in updated figures on airshow attendance shortly before presstime Tuesday. The Whidbey News-Times received the updated information too late to change the attendance figures in the feature story about the airshow on page B1.
