I don’t blame them. The only entertainment was when the formation of jets went by right overhead, and that only lasted for about 2 seconds. Pretty thing gruel with which to amuse a crowd.

The white-haired guy up front and in the middle just has a classic tough-guy face. I would cast him in just about any Lee Marvin-type role you would care to bring up.
