The best part of a car show? A luxury private jet!

Monday's Family Value Day drew even more people than the auction's first such discount event last year, when more than 25,000 people filed through the gates to see the world's greatest collection of rare, vintage automobiles.

For 9-year-old Bruce Foglesong of Phoenix, it was an Eclipse 500 LX, a luxury private jet, which took his breath away. He arrived with his parents Max and Martha Foglesong for the first time.

"I'm surprised to see a plane here, especially one like this," said Foglesong after sitting in one of the jet's passenger seats. "I can really see the controls and the seats are really nice."

Even Mark Burdick, a U.S. Airways pilot, was impressed.

"It's like the Ferrari of the sky," said Burdick who lives in Scottsdale. In tow, was his 12-year-old son Andrew. The two came with another father and son pair from Prescott, Frank and Blair Walsh.
