Re: MCAS Yuma Airshow 2020

Hi, Are there any good opportunities to see arrivals or practice on Friday afternoon? What is the best time to arrive? How is the lighting ? I have a 70-300mm zoom and 300mm+1.4TC fixed on FX. Many thanks for any tips or advice. Your best bet for Friday is to sit in the fairgrounds parking lot just...

Re: Thunderbirds Visiting Blue Angels in El Centro

This article says the training runs from today to Saturday the 29th. I expected it to carry over to next week, but the Thunderbirds do need to be ACC certified and I'd imagine that'd occur at Nellis. https://www.thedesertreview.com/news/blue-angels-and-thunderbirds-to-joint-train-at-naf-el/article_4...

I'm pretty sure that MKBlues1 will have some videos on YouTube when the Thunderbirds arrive, and any other flying they do.
No doubt! I wish I was out there this year

Re: Thunderbirds Visiting Blue Angels in El Centro

A couple people have privately asked for schedule info which we sadly don't have. If you know when the teams will be flying, please post it here!

Thunderbirds Visiting Blue Angels in El Centro

Some recent rumors are coming to fruition as Thunderbird 8 arrived at NAF El Centro today. The rest of the team is supposedly going to arrive on Thursday for some joint training flights before winter training ends. Both teams have their first public shows set for March 14th. https://mobile.twitter.c...

Re: Planes of Fame Airshow 2020

I'm going to the Sunrise photo shoot at the Saturday show. Any suggestions on settings? I've researched exposure bracketing and using graduated neutral density filters. While I haven't jumped into post processing yet (too scary!) I'll try shooting RAW so that I can make adjustments. Any other ideas...

Re: Thunder Over The Rock 2020

Yep, seems to me it's either the C-17 demo team or a Navy "demo" team (could also be the Growler)

Either way, should be a quality addition!

Re: 2020 USAF A-10 Thunderbolt II Demo Team Schedule

The A-10 demo team just posted some photos on Facebook of them shooting flares during practice. The F-16 team was going to use them last year and the F-35 team was practicing with them earlier this year. Demos may get a bit more exciting in 2020!!
