I vaguely remember hearing something about this date changing. Any update on that?

The website has been updated, it looks Matt Younkin will be there in the Beech 18 (his schedule says day an night show :shock: ). There is also a picture I think of Gene Soucy, but I can't say for certain. It looks like it will be a much bigger air show this year.

According to the website, there will be a night airshow on Friday. I'm hoping that if aerobatics have to be a part of the airshow Saturday, they are restricted to warbird and vintage types (like Matt Younkin). There are more than enough airshows around with a plethora of Extra 300s and Pitts. I'd hate to see this event lose what makes it unique and become another one of those.

Paul Keppeler's F-86 and Jeff Kaney's MiG-17 will both be there again as well.
