Not many F-22 shows in Northeast. (Most of the ACC schedules lack Northeast shows.)

Looks like I will only see them this year at Dover.

Hope the Dover show is on the base like in 2017 and not at the Museum as in the past.

I like to see the F-22 Team ground show.

Last year I saw the F-22 Demo at 4 different shows.

The Racine, Wi will be a Heritage flyover (1 pass) for a parade. The time is still TBD, but it appears that a flyover will occur around 1030AM.

We are attempting to put together an air show on july 4th before the fireworks. Although 2019 seems like a long shot, we are going to try and attempt to pull it off. Last year we had some local pilots flying their planes and a flyover from the 128th ANG KC135 and 115th ANG F16S.

Solid intel! I'll change it to a parade flyover on the list and calendar. Best of luck getting it going! Make sure to start a thread for it if you do, we can add it to the calendar also.

We are hoping they will add a few stops in Canada this year.
Saw them put on an incredible aerial performance in 2017 - Quinte International Airshow at CFB Trenton, ON
They were the fans favourite, leaving our beloved RCAF Snowbirds in second place.

Four? Lucky you! I'm lucky if I get one Saturday a year to see the Raptor. Any particular advice on capturing the ground show?

To see the F-22 Demo Team ground show, you have to be in front of the 2 jets.

The jets have to be at the crowd line.

I love to see "Loco" and the 2 crew chiefs do their show.

"Loco" puts on the flight equipment, salutes and shakes hands with the 2 crew chiefs, climbs the ladder, puts on helmet and starts the Raptor.

The 2 crew chiefs do all the checks and then the Raptor leaves for the show.

A recent ACC post says that the F-22 will now be attending the Sheppard AFB show in October.

Their compiled schedule also lists the Eielson AFB performance as canceled, but the show is still on. I'm not 100% sure on that one.

Sort of interesting news: this Thursday, the team will post a video on YouTube of inside-the-cockpit footage of the F-22 for the first time. Not sure exactly if this is a demo video, or just miscellaneous footage of various Raptors, or something in between.
