I have seen both the blue angels and thunderbirds in airshows. Both great.

i have never been to an airshow, but would like to one day. however, the ones here are usually boring anyway because no one good ever seems to come here.

I wish they still had airshows over at the (now defunct) El Toro Airbase.

I have never been to an air show as such but I have seen the Red Arrows perform 20+ times.

I used to go tothe TT races in the Isle of Man every year for quite a few years where they normally performed at least once usually twice - and I have been to the British Grand Prix a couple of times where the Red Arrows always show up. Ive also seen aerial displays at the Belgian GP but I cant remember who was performing.

The manouevres those guys are trained to do is kind of awe-inspiring though.

I've seen the Blue Angels too, but they're no match to the Patrouille de France :P
