2 more Mustangs added: Quicksilver and Obsession. Possibly 2 more on the way! Quite the gathering :D

Also, they are confirming details, but it looks like a DC-3 will be selling rides as well.

New performer: it appears to be Barry Avent’s FG-1D. Not the Corsair I was expecting, but... :roll:

Weather is looking pretty bad. Chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Gonna play it by ear, but may not be going after all.

Decided to go at 7 am this morning. Drove through hours of rain. Worth it.

Many aircraft didn't make it due to the weather. Otherwise, things went on as expected. Mark Henley was in Rammer Jammer instead of Lady B. Also, since he flew the Stang to Cheraw, he had to borrow a T-6 for the AeroShell flight. Rare change up. My favorite moment was when I got there, I got to watch the DC-3 take off from the end of the runway. The action was non stop, so my camera was pretty much on the whole time.
