Not much buzz about this one, I guess because it is very much same old same old. I came looking for it to add that an E-2 Hawkwye flyby has been announced!

That is a nice, not very often seen flying at shows, addition to the airshow. Wish it wasn't so far of a drive from KC to this show. I see that the NASA S-3 is on static display. I would love to see that in person. Looks like some other good statics as well. Not bad!

We're attending Cleveland National Air Show for the first time this year - wanted a fun way to close out the summer & surprise our daughter with another chance to see the Blues! :)

It's a good one! I look forward to Cleveland probably second most behind Oshkosh, mostly because of the nice times with friends downtown. It has been my season finale many times.

Looking at coming out on Friday and Saturday if I can get off of work on Friday.
Good show in 2016 the last time I was out here.

Just in case anyone is curious, the show mentioned on Facebook that Fat Albert will not be flying this weekend but is in town.

She didn't fly at Terre Haute either, but I wasn't sure if that was because of a Fri/Sat parts run or not.

The TFR is from noon to 2 and 3 to 430 today. I imagine they are doing circles and arrivals now and will fly a full practice demo during the second slot.

The TFR for tomorrow runs 10am to 5pm and on Sat/Sun/Mon it is 930am until 6pm.
