Being timed with Oshkosh has its benefits!

I have not been thrilled with Milwaukee in my previous visits though, and Oshkosh has so much more that I really don't see me making it to Milwaukee

Milwaukee has definitely been hit-or-miss, sadly. If it's not no-show acts (or the Blues only being able to put up 3 jets), it's IMC keeping everything out of the box. Oshkosh is pretty much dead on the final Sunday, though, so I figure that's probably the best day for MKE.

LOL. Ill believe it when I see it. This show has a history of posting acts that magically disappear.

Heh, no kidding - the MH-53 is no longer listed, but now they list a C-17 flyby, and the Hornet demo is 'pending confirmation' now.

Dave, you are undoubtedly closer to the truth than any of us would like... now it's "pending _final_ confirmation"... Which, in airshow-speak is probably code for "final confirmation that we are most definitely not coming". Mike Wiskus is not on the civvy list anymore either.
