Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

A little humor from Franklin's Flying Circus: https://www.facebook.com/franklins.flying.circus/photos/a.603911326338291/3069998559729543/?type=3&eid=ARACcF3aFCJCsg16L3N445Se8-_EV__acJk9sONgXzqcSAY4nj2FJcI1mz6-jVndF6y6XiiRwWzbXlg2&__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARDICAjwwQvQhAh7g_BcbM6Mokrur5vp9OdxwLwsvu4aSE7sDc2E...

Re: SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo 2020

Sun n Fun has been postponed. The current reschedule date is May 5-10, but that isn't fully confirmed. The Air Force is not supporting events until May 15th, so the show will either have to go forward without AF support or push back even further. https://www.planeandpilotmag.com/article/sun-n-fun-p...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

Yikes. Just about everything is being cancelled or "postponed". Pro sports, college sports, college classes (going online here in FL). It'll be interesting to see what happens to airshows that aren't on military bases, like SUN 'n FUN. I can imagine that at least some of the vendors, or even perform...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

With all the cancellations of events, universities going online only, etc., it's now pretty much a matter of how long will this last? Into Summer? Of course, we don't know yet. Personally, that really sucks because I like to plan things in advance. I do certainly understand the reasoning and, logica...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

I'm assuming that others will follow, particularly those on military bases.

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

Saw a post on MacDill AFB's FB page, sorry can't link it from here, where someone asked about cancelling the show due to corona. The answer was that the show is still on as planned, but any changes would be announced on the website and FB pages. This one is planned as my first airshow of the year, f...

Re: Altus AFB C-17 and KC-135 Demo Team

That's disappointing from the airshow fan in me. I haven't seen the C-17 demo, so was looking forward to seeing it. Operations do come first though, and I appreciate what they do.

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

Comparison between countries isn't really possible as the various outbreaks will all have different characteristics and there are different rates/types of testing. The same goes for containment and delay techniques used by different countries. What worked in China has not necessarily helped other c...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

SUN 'n FUN has a public safety notice available on their website that talks about COVID-19/corona virus. Basically, they are planning for the show to go on. "SUN ‘n FUN is working closely on a daily basis with local, state, and federal agencies to plan for a safe event with appropriate precautions a...

Re: SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo 2020

Did Sun-N-Fun do something to make the US Navy mad?!?! I'm very surprised they didn't get the Rhino demo or even a Legacy Flight. The USAF will be well represented with the Thunderbirds and F-35 Demo. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the show. I will definitely be attending Saturday for both the day a...
