Re: Blue Angel Super Hornet Photos!

They don't use smoke with burners, anyway, color or not. And... broken link in the first post. Oh, well. They actually do use smoke with the burners on...it's just not visible while the burners are lit. Case in point is the Blue Angels takeoff maneuvers (diamond half squirrel cage or just the loop)...

Re: Dayton Air Show 2020

Also, just going off a normal airshow scenario, anyone expect more performers added to the list? I think the show is in serious jeopardy right now after what I read Saturday. The DoD extended their travel ban to 30 Jun which would mean no military participation at the show. The DoD did state that t...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

DoD travel ban has now been extended to 30 Jun. It could be extended even further, but the flip side is it could be lifted earlier as well. Said that they will revisit the ban every 15 days to see if it needs to be changed. As of now, it doesn’t sound promising for shows scheduled up to 30 Jun that ...

Re: MCAS Miramar Air Show 2020

The website https://www.miramarairshow.com/performers/ is dated 2020, but shows the RAF Red Arrows performing. Wasn't that a one-time event last year? You are correct. The website just hasn’t been updated yet. A lot of shows wait until a couple months out or so before starting to update for the cur...

When does Red Flag 20-2 run? I heard it might be 3 weeks? Getting antsy and thinking about a last minute flight
I believe it began today and runs for two weeks through 20 Mar...unless something has changed.

Re: C-46 Commando "Tinker Belle" 2020 Schedule

Are all of these scheduled dates for flying displays? I am specifically interested in Cherry Point. The only time I was able to potentially see Tinker Belle was at Thunder Over Michigan a couple years ago or so and unfortunately there was a mechanical issue. Hopeful that it will be flying at Cherry ...

Re: MCAS Yuma Airshow 2020

Well...disappointing that the Rhino demo team isn't coming, but that was just going to be an added bonus. The lineup is great and will be an awesome show without it! Looking forward to it with a little over a month to go!

Re: US Navy Tactical Demos and Legacy Flights in 2020

Yuma stated they have not been confirmed to receive the Super Hornet demo yet even though it is on the ICAS calendar. That said, it does seem like the Navy is close to their schedule announcements with the LA announcement and Yuma rumor. Having attended Lemoore last September, the video from El Cent...
