Re: Wings Over Wayne (WOW '22) 2022

The Facebook page updated their cover photo to reflect a 2023 with dates to be announced "soon". Looks like the 2022 show is cancelled. Well that was a bust. :cry:

Re: Warbirds Over Monroe Air Show 2021

Looks like a full lineup this year. The organizers posted this on Facebook: We can tell you there will surely be a few P51 mustangs, P40, C46, C54, a jet car, the Geico Skytypers, the Toro pyro team, Huey rides, B25, C47, T6's, T-28's, and much, much, more. https://www.facebook.com/412467445460665/p...

Just delighted at the recent influx of local air shows. Can’t wait to hear more.

Skyblazers F-86 Sabre for Sale

Not sure if I missed this being posted, but it was a surprise to me when i stumbled across this article. The Valiant Air Command is selling their Skyblazers F-86. The article mentions other fighter jets for sale that I've seen (Paul Allen's MiG-29, Art Nalls's Sea Harrier, The Sageburner F-4, etc). ...

Re: Navy Wings' Sea Fury crash at Yeovilton

Aircraft has been declared a write-off, as it would cost more money to repair that to buy one. Salvageable parts will be sold. Certainly not a surprise given the damage.

Re: MCAS Cherry Point Airshow 2021

Holy crap this is awesome! If they are able to secure some of the performers they were supposed to have last year, that would be cool to. It is pretty short notice, so I'll take what I can get. This is the same weekend that Miramar was supposed to happen, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the Blues got ...

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator - Coming 2020

Microsoft just announced that a "Top Gun: Maverick" expansion is coming to MSFS for free this fall. No details yet, but it looks like at a minimum the F/A-18E, the mystery experimental jet from the movie, and an aircraft carrier will be added. Skip to 1:50 in the video. https://youtu.be/QZ...

Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

I'm a little late to this, but new information has been presented in the past few weeks regarding the TBM incident, and unfortunately, it is pretty damning for the VAC as well as Orlando FSDO. These videos, presented by Dan Gryder, site a series of oversights and shortcuts in both the maintenance/re...

Re: A question about retiring the F22?

I can answer part 2. The Air Force is currently working on the next-generation air dominance (NGAD) program which is intended to replace or compliment both the F-22 and F-35. They have, by some accounts, already flown a prototype of a concept aircraft, but I think the fighter that will be fielded is...
