Re: Stuart Airshow 2021

Very nice looking lineup, so far! I'm especially excited for the Red Bull Helo demo. Haven't seen that one before. At this point, I'm certainly planning to attend the Friday night show (?) and Saturday day show.

Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

Dang! That's a pretty damning report. Since I have no idea on the inner workings of warbird restoration or airshow production, I'll refrain from making any sweeping comments. Though, I will say that if there's smoke coming out of an airplane (warbird or modern or whatever) that doesn't have a smoke ...

Re: Orlando Air and Space Show 2021

Originally, I was probably going to pass on this show since the F-35 dropped out. While the T-birds are a big draw, so are the other military demos. Now, it seems there will be both a Super Hornet Demo and Growlers (probably Legacy Flight & extra passes). If that holds, this will show will becom...

Re: Shuttleworth Collection Airshows 2021

Thanks for sharing the pictures! I'd love to see all those vintage planes flying around sometime.

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

And a few more from Sunday's show. The bad news for me is that my airshow days are now over until the Fall with the Sanford/Orlando show (maybe) and Stuart (most likely). Of course, I'd rather not be at an airshow in Florida during the heat of the Summer.

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

Here are a few from today. Growlers got some vapes on high speed passes. All 6 Blue Angels performed the whole show, so that was a positive. The crowd seemed to like all the acts. It was a great time today, but I'm very tired after this weekend. More pics to follow.

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

Thanks for that info. 5 had an engine problem. We are at the show today. Bert took off when we were coming in and returned a bit later with a replacement engine for #5. We'll see if they fly 5 or 6 Blue Angeld today. Fingers crossed for all 6. Loved seeing the Growlers do three high speed passes. So...

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

Was outside the airport today. Blue Angels started with all 6 planes. Part way through, #5 landed. At some point, #7 took off and joined the show. FYI, 'Bert didn't fly today, so I assume it still isn't certified. Edit: added a few pics from today. C-2 Greyhound, L-39, Growler, and a couple from the...

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

A few from today's practice. The Growlers did a couple passes, the Legacy Flight w/ Korean War Hero, then a few more passes. It seemed like one did a touch and go (couldn't see exactly from where I was), so I hope they continue to do that this weekend. The Viper Demo wasn't in the "Venom" ...
