Re: Preliminary 2021 US Navy Blue Angels Schedule

According to Facebook comments, the team will host a public practice at El Centro following the completion of their winter training. They don’t have a date yet.

Re: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2020

Looks like they’re getting the Snowbirds and the Viper Demo Team. Noteworthy that the Raptor will be in Milwaukee Saturday and Sunday. Maybe it’ll sneak over for a bit.

Re: 2020 Jet Team Schedules Next Week!

I hope Super Hornet demos pick back up next year. I haven't actually seen one in person since 2016. The squadrons have been prioritizing training and operational requirements over air shows, but the Navy recently announced that they have achieved higher Super Hornet readiness than expected this year...

Sad to say but I missed this show. Please inform me whenever it will happen again.
Presumably spring 2021, but Cherry Point will have a similar show with the same military performers at the end of next April

Re: Your five favourite airshow moments of 2019

5. Crowd size at Wings Over Wayne. I wanted to include a different show for each of my top 5, so this is more of a filler to be honest. The air show was fantastic; the weather was perfect, and all performers did their full high shows. The Combined Arms Demo was one of the most complete and busy mili...

Re: Warbirds Over Monroe Air Show

Amazing show as always. It seems to be growing in popularity too, which is great to see. W7 didn't make it, but Matt Younkin surprised us with a performance instead. One of the few shows I've been to where the weather was too good. The winds were so dead that the smoke never cleared the field.

Re: B-17 Crash In Connecticut

Here's something heartbreaking and a little touching. If you haven't heard of VASaviation, they upload captioned videos of real ATC audio from airports. The videos usually involve near misses and arguements, but occasionally they will get the ATC from an airport during a crash. They previously did v...
