Re: Airshow Bucket Lists

I've completely given up on 2020, so my Bucket List is for 2021 and beyond. I started this year with plans to see RIAT and the RN show at Yeovilton in July. When that got torpedoed, I thought a road trip to CA to see MCAS Miramar, Point Mugu, and Edwards AFB over 3 consecutive weekends would be a bi...

Re: MCAS Yuma Airshow 2021

I saw the 2018 Yuma show, and it was great!

It was a one-day event, then I drove across AZ to see the Sunday Luke Days show at Luke AFB.

Re: Airshow London 2020

Re: Snowbirds - Operation Inspiration

This shows how soon after takeoff it crashed, and how dense the homes are spaced. This could have been far worse. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Kamloops+Airport,+3035+Airport+Rd,+Kamloops,+BC+V2B+7X1/2425+Glenview+Ave,+Kamloops,+BC+V2B+4L5/@50.7014588,-120.4521179,14.5z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0...

Re: Snowbirds - Operation Inspiration

I posted this on my FB page: Thoughts are with the family and friends of Capt. Jennifer Casey, and the entire Snowbirds team on their tragic loss today. I had the honour of meeting Capt. Casey (Capt Howell back then) in April 2018. She was the PAO for the CF-18 Demo Team aircraft then, and it was th...

Abbotsford AIAS is my local hometown show.
So far, it has not been cancelled or postponed.
