Glad to hear the Thunderbirds are starting their practices again. I hope they take all the time they need to get back into the swing of things. It sure does sound like they will be returning soon, though, which is a good way for the team to bond and heal during this difficult time.

The Thunderbirds have canceled Charleston and Fort Lauderdale as they work to bring the previous #4 back to the team. Further shows will be evaluated later.

I'll update the first post with this info as soon as I can.

Glad to hear they are going back to a 6 ship demonstration for the rest of the year. It will be interesting to see how long they will need to get back to flying at shows.

Very interesting news. Last couple of updates the team announced cancellations for 2 straight shows. This time it is just for 1. This must be a sign that they will be back at shows very soon since they are mentioning finalizing and preparing to resume the season.
