3. It varies from event to event

A lot of it comes out of the Air Force's training budget - pilots are required to log a certain number of hours in the air every year, and if a flypast gives them an excuse to spend one or two up there that falls under "okay, why not?" There's a big purse for that sort of thing in the first place, as with any large organization that has a lot of skill-upkeep stuff going on, and the part of it that goes to events like that would be pretty small.

Other times the event organizers foot some or all of the bill. I'm not sure of the rules governing who pays what and when.
