Still in the process of bookings and signing the final contracts! We have quite a lineup assembled, but are awaiting official signings before announcing the lineup.

We did just announce that Rob Holland "Ultimate Airshows" will be returning in 2019 today. In addition, the Misty Blues All-Woman Skydiving Team has also joined our lineup. They will be the first skydiving team to appear in Battle Creek in 19 years. They'll also be participating in our Night Air Show on July 5th.

Thanks, Star! :). Yes, "Tuna" will be flying the Heritage Flight again this year as he did last year.

Also, we've added a bit more fun just before a week out!

I didn't realize that different pilots use the same plane. Lol. Limiter is using the P51 in Dubuque and our flyover in Racine, then bringing it to Ohare I think. Then Tuna is picking it up and bringing it to Battle. Lol
