Re: Navy TAC Demo 2019 Status

Well, the announced schedule is harsh - but OPS Tempo first I guess. Hopefully next year the West Coast will get the Demos and the East coast can take a year off :lol:

Re: Why do we rarely see bombers flying during air shows?

Ditto on everything already said - as a show organizer I can attest to many of the scheduling difficulties as well. Funny thing about the B-52 - the wing tip "bogie" landing gear have a nasty habit of being just the right distance from the runway center line to whack off the runway lights as the B-5...
