Does anyone know where I can spot USAF bombers for this year?
I know there's tentatively gonna be 3 Red Flags going on but I can only be there for one day, I'd like to see things like the B2, 52, or Lancer.
At the same time, I have also wanted to see a B17 or even fly in one and I'd like to ask if anyone knows anything about B17s display/fly schedules for this year.
For reference I'm from Los Angeles so driving out to LV is gonna be my farthest stretch unfortunately.
Anyways, thanks for the help and I'm glad to have found this community!

Go to the airshows at the USAF bomber bases, such as Whiteman (B-2), Barksdale (B-52), or Dyess (B-1). You'll see lots of bombers. But they are a long ways from LA.

As far as rides go, your best bet is probably the CAF Wings of Freedom Tour. They offer rides in the B-17, B-24, and B-25. Looks like they're coming to Santa Ana, CA in May. The Movie Mephis Belle and other air show bombers give rides at some shows as well, so keep checking their websites.
