Re: AirshowStuff is looking for some new helpers!

Do you see the magazine ever returning?
I was not aware of it back when it was happening, unfortunately.
I looked at several issues in the Archives. Nice looking mag! I hope it does return.

Re: AirshowStuff is looking for some new helpers!

Yeah, I also noticed that the aviation mags want base and unit reports more than general air shows.

Are you interested in AFB museum reports? Or private (Not AFB) museums?

Re: AirshowStuff is looking for some new helpers!

Hi Ryan, I can offer reports and photos too. I am trying to establish myself as a freelance photojournalist, submitting to various magazines, etc., so I need to be careful not to "scoop myself". Meaning if I give you a full airshow report and photos that appear online right after the show ends, I wi...

Re: Why do we rarely see bombers flying during air shows?

But yeah, it'd be wonderful if the B-1B would come to say... Abbotsford International to sit static and then take off Departure Monday. PLEASE. AIAS did have the B-1 do a demo many years ago, probably early 90's. And the B-2 did a fly-past one year also. 1997, according to this. https://www.abbotsf...

Re: MAX lens size (Goofy military rules)

I just heard back from the PAO folks that run the Whiteman AFB Wings Over Whiteman Facebook page for WOW 2019.
They confirm that there is NO size restriction for WOW. :)

The WOW folks really are doing a fine job of communicating. I'm looking forward to this one!

MAX lens size (Goofy military rules)

Is there any rhyme or reason with some, not all, US military bases having a cap on the size of a lens? And are some branches, or individual bases more sticky than others? I had no trouble with my Sigma 150-600mm lens at MCAS Yuma or Luke AFB last year, going as a regular Joe. Also no problem at MCAS...

Re: How Many Airshows Are You Attending In 2019?

I'm planning a long road trip that will include:

Vectren Dayton Air Show - Dayton, OH

After I return home to BC, I'll see:

Boundary Bay, Delta, BC
AIAS, Abbotsford, BC

Possibly, but unlikely:
NAS Lemoore, CA
Aviation Nation, Nellis AFB, NV

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

With the new fighter jet evaluation back on, is it likely that AIAS might get a SAAB Gripen and/or a Eurofighter Typhoon show up to show off?

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2019 "Corsair Crazy"

I won't be at TOM 2019, even though it is shaping up to be a great show.

What are the chances that there will be a large group of Corsairs in 2020?
Either at TOM, or elsewhere.
