What did these kids learn by coming to the Quad Cities Airshow?

A tremendous amount of technology is the idea that comes to me when I think of what these kids saw.  The kids saw a tank, howitzer, Bradley fighting vehicle, various machine guns with sections cut out sot he insides of the gun were visible.  They rode on a hydraulically operated flight simulator taking a helicopter ride chasing another helicopter around Hawaii.
