Re: TBM Avenger Reunion & Salute to Veterans 2024

Can you do something about the weather? :lol: Every year it seems to rain. We had beautiful weather last year! Glad to see "Yankee Lady" back. When the weather is good, this is one of my favorite events. Let's hope it cooperates again! The Huey will be coming from Yankee officially now to...

The US Army Golden Knights will also be performing. More to...

The website hasn't been fully updated with 2024 information yet but it is being worked on. what is the full list of performers? As of right now, this is where we are...

A-10s are being phased out at all ANG bases as they prepare for retirement. Fort Wayne has transitioned to F-16s.

Re: 2024 Greater Binghamton Air Show

Have we seen something like this at airshows before? Nope they are based out of Syracuse NY I think you didn't answer the question or didn't interpret the question correctly.

Re: US Navy Demo Schedules?

I know the US Navy is often late in announcing airshow schedules, so does anyone know when we can expect to see initial schedules? Just curious. I will say that I'd love to see an E-2 demo this year.

I've had the pleasure to meet Manfred at Willow Grove several times. Awesome guy.

Don't know if it's been reported but as of November 2023, I'm under the impression he's now retired from airshows.
He stated in his speech that 2024 will be his final season.
