Legacy Flight added: T-45 Goshawk with the WHF T-2 Buckeye. That will make for a pretty formation.

Looking pretty good again with the A-10 coming back after some hiatus. This show used to attract hornets.

I would take what's posted on the website with a major grain of salt. It's the exact same performers list from the last two years with the A-10, Heritage Flight and Legacy Flight info pasted above it. All of the same acts below were listed last year as well and the list was not accurate.

Anyone else going? I'll be there, likely sitting in the grass as close the corner of the flight line as possible.

Sounds like the F-5 is going to make an appearance and the Legacy Flight will be the T-45 with the A-4 rather than the T-2.

Perfect weather and a really nice show for a small airport. First time I've seen the Hopper's jet team (after all these years of advertising them on their web site). Nice jet parade of older vintage military mainly trainer planes. Nice collection of warbirds too. The venue is great with close access to demo jets parked in front. They used to have the F-18 years ago regularly, but people complained and they stopped. The A-10 this year was the first relatively modern military presence since the F-18 left. Here's hoping more modern returns in the future.
