Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2018: 20 Years of Thunder

SDT?? Well to each his own I guess. Waiting for more information on what vintage warbirds will be attending and flying in the show. There have been some great Thunder Over Michigan shows in past years, but recently the warbird lineups have sometimes been a little thin. Hope we hear something soon, a...

Re: SUN 'n FUN International Fly In & Expo 2018

I may attend Tuesday and Wednesday.

Hope we get some expanded information on what other warbirds will be attending.

Re: Best airshows in US during September-October?

Wings Over Houston is SOMETIMES one of the best shows in October. It was a great show in 2011, 2014 and 2017...the last years I attended. The Collings Foundation jets were featured flying in 2014 and 2017, but many years they are just static. Not sure if 2018 will be that good. No real specifics abo...

Re: 2018 MCAS Cherry Point Air Show

I am hoping I get confirmation that EA-6B Prowlers will be flying in the show. This is likely to be the last Cherry Point show with Prowlers as they are scheduled for retirement by 2019. It would seem to be appropriate to have some kind of farewell/sunset performance at the show. I will plan to go I...

Re: MiG Alley Air Shows' F-5 ready for the airshow circuit

Nice addition to the North American jet warbird air show circuit!

Apparently an ex-Norwegian Air Force F-5A, it looks good in USAF markings. Hopefully this will appear in the jet warbird lineup at Oshkosh in 2018 among other places.

Re: Wings Over Houston 2017

With the F-4D now back in the air after almost 6 years, the performing lineup for Houston is looking very strong. The last big vintage jet show for WoH was 3 years ago in 2014, but with the F-4 back in this year's lineup the October 21-22 show may be the best one ever!

Re: Selfridge ANGB Air Show & Open House: Celebrating 100 Years of Selfridge

Great to see that the Collings F-4D has flown and will make the show on August 19-20. This has perhaps the best lineup of any weekend show in North America this year, and I wish I could be there. But I will see the F-4, F-100F, TA-4F and several other jets and prop warbirds flying at Wings Over Hous...

Re: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 - Oshkosh, WI

Here is some unexpected but exciting news! How about a Cobra four-ship flight?

But I acknowledge that many people love the civi...
