Re: Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival 2018

My pictures of the hornet dedication pass were out of focus. Though I did get a good picture of the legacy tailhook flight on Sunday.

Re: Northern Illinois Airshow 2018

The air show is usually pretty good and the food at this event is also very good. They have a lot of local vendors that sell food.

Re: 2018 Gary Air Show (CANCELLED)

I hope this show does come back in 2019, but I would not be surprised if it never comes back. It's been cancelled four of the last six years. Twice they have cancelled the Thunderbirds. This show does have a large crowd, it's just difficult finding a way to recoup the money that the show spends.

Re: 2018 Wings Over Myrtle Beach

I was reading posts on Facebook about this show. It sounds like the parking situation was a mess. It also looks like they didn't have enough shuttle buses to get people into the air show.

Re: Airshow Radio Monitoring

I have found that the military demo frequencies remain the same at most air shows. The air boss frequency changes a lot. Chicago is usually a different frequency every year.

Re: Third Annual Gathering of TBM Avengers

The first Annual Gathering of TBM Avengers was in April of 2016 and the weather turned out pretty good for that day. In 2017, the dates were moved to May, though it was dreary most of the day. I hope the 2018 show has better weather.

Re: 2018 USAF Thunderbirds Schedule

I'm surprised that Fort Wayne is back in 2019 and Grissom is having a show too. The distance between the two airports is about 70 miles, so I wonder if Fort Wayne will change to 2020 instead.
