Strange they dont mention the B-2, as it is home base.

They almost always have a four ship fly-by of the local T-38s, the 442nd A-10s four ship airfield attack demo and of course the B-2. I haven seen any of these listed, as their Facebook page, nor their website have hardly anything listed. As this is the closest AFB to me, I will for sure be going.

Every time I've been to this one the B-2 has made an appearance. If you're there early enough and paying attention you may see at least one B-2 take off. This is usually before any of the airshow performers start, and if I recall correctly they don't really give you a heads up. When I went in 2017 they actually had 2 take off. Then towards the end of the show the B-2 normally does a couple of passes, and sometimes a simulated bombing run. Then they land, and taxi past the crowd.

Is the ramp with performers visible from crowd line at this show?

Will F-22 Demo Team jets be in front of crowd line?

Things can always change, but yes, the show had the F-16 Demo team parked out in from tof the crowd line., so I'd expect to see the Raptors parked there as well. The show is unusual in that the hangers for the B-2s are also in front of the crowds as well...as in you can't hardly see the runway, and its really far away. I have been going to this show for decades, the best, and really only area to really enjoy the flying (if you're into photos) is in the grass area on the south end of the runway. That's where you'll find me, and its usually not very crowded there.

My first time at this show and really enjoyed it. I went on the Saturday so missed out on seeing 'Doc' fly, but I thought it was a pretty good line-up and mixture of performers with the warbirds through to the B-2. And lots of A-10s which was cool! Weather held out as well which was great. Here's a few of my photos:
