It is confirmed that the GEICO Skytypers will be back. Also, I talked with LT Cary Rickoff, Blue Angel #7 and said that sometime in the middle of next month they will arrive for their winter visit.

Mike Wiskus is confirmed and the F-22 Raptor will make its first appearance since 2007 which ironically is the year the Air & Sea Show ended and both the Raptor and Super Hornet debuted at the event.

I attended yesterday and I must say although the weather was perfect and I am grateful we even have this airshow, it was mediocre at best and short. Some of the advertised demos didn't perform, including the Heritage Flight which is one of my favorites.
