Re: US Navy Tactical Demos and Legacy Flights in 2020

They have actually already been practicing for a several weeks. I was down in Va Beach a couple of weeks ago and witnessed a Rhino practice demo from Oceana Blvd. I talked to a local and he said they have been flying practice demos since the first week in January. Good to see they are hitting it har...

Re: 2019 NAS Oceana Airshow Sep 21st & 22nd

I am sure it was just an oversight on the schedule with regards to the Air Power Demo. If you look there are also a couple other performers not listed including the jump teams that will likely perform twice. Despite the earlier post, the Air Power Demo was already performed this morning from 10-11am...

Re: 2019 NAS Oceana Airshow Sep 21st & 22nd

I honestly cannot remember that last year Oceana posted a static display list on their website prior to the show. I do recall one of the recent years they did publish a static list on their Facebook page about a week or so before the show. I believe that was maybe 2 years ago. If it happens at all t...

Re: 61st Annual City of Chicago Air & Water Show (2019)

Before I went to bed last night the forecast was partly to mostly cloudy with no mention of rain for today. I wake up and it’s 80% chance of heavy thunderstorms. Am I the only one that thinks weather forecasting has gotten worse in the last few years? Here’s to hoping the show goes on today.

Re: 2019 F-18 Super Hornet TAC Demo Schedule

See below. At least some hope that perhaps we will still see Super Hornet demos for some shows on the remaining schedule. AERODROME NAS OCEANA #146;S CLASS D AND E2 AIRSPACE CLOSED TO NON PARTICAPATING AIRCRAFT FOR A FLIGHT DEMONSTRATION, SFC-15,000' AGL ON THE FOLLOWING DATE AND TIME: WED JULY 10 1...

Re: 2019 F-18 Super Hornet TAC Demo Schedule

I would love for somebody with more knowledge of the situation to be able to chime in and set me straight because from a 30,000 foot view the whole thing makes little sense. What I can't understand is why VFA-106 cannot support a mere 5 shows for the rest of the season, but VFA-122 can continue to p...

Re: 2019 Hyundai National Salute To America's Heroes Air & Sea Show - Miami, FL

The show submitted a request for single ship demo performances for all ACC aircraft and ultimately only received the F-35 demo team. It’s not their fault they only received one. For all we know there were supposed to be F-16 and F-22 flyovers that cancelled last minute. Ever since the grounding the ...

Re: 2019 Hyundai National Salute To America's Heroes Air & Sea Show - Miami, FL

If you were disappointed by that lineup overall then you should probably give up airshows in the US altogether and just go to RIAT. There probably won’t be more than a couple shows this year that will have more military hardware in the air than this one. They tried for the F-22 and F-16 demo teams a...

Re: 2019 Hyundai National Salute To America's Heroes Air & Sea Show - Miami, FL

This was my first year attending and it certainly won’t be my last. Despite a few of the advertised performers not making it I thought the show was fantastic. The highlight for me were those amazing super low B-52 passes. I also thought the A-10’s did an awesome job and as several already mentioned,...

Re: Westmoreland County Airshow May 25-26

I didn't think the show would happen with the line of storms bearing down on us this morning so decided to visit the Flight 93 Memorial and come back at 1 in case there was any flying. Turns out the rain had passed so here we are about fifth row on the flightline. The B-52 flybys were super tame (3...
