Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

Shaping-up to be a repeat of the "2013 Sequestration". I fear we are looking at just that this year. Many airshows are now at military bases and what base commander wants to be responsible for tens of thousands of civilians - who may have Covid19 and have those under their command & care pass aroun...

Re: California Capital Airshow 2020

How late does this show run on the 3rd?

My dad's birthday is the next day so I would like to see the F-35 and then make a 5:15 PM flight to see him.

Thanks!

Re: 2020 Jet Team Schedules Next Week!

Love to see the F-22 at Abbotsford - it would have been a five year wait, 2015 was the year before I went to Abby every single year, and a twilight show also for the F-22. If we can get the Super Hornet Demo back at Abby, sweet. Please. Nothing against the F-35C Demo Team, good to see that. I am rig...

Re: Nellis AFB Aviation Nation 2019

I used a 70-200 on a full ...
