Well, I'm gonna still go off of the show's Facebook, website until things are finalized just because they have been promoting it as July 6 and 7th. I have reached out to them, and I'll let you know when they get back to me.

I can confirm that the air show dates have been moved to about a month earlier. This is to accommodate a Thunderbirds trip to Colombia and give the original show dates as a a mid-season break. Of course, while this is how it is now, things can still change.

Glad to see the date switch. It never made much sense for Fort Wayne, Battle Creek and (likely) Goshen to all be on the same weekend. Unfortunately, the new dates for Fort Wayne interfere with another non-aviation trip I have planned, so I won't be able to go.

How is the parking going to be for this show? I think I read something about there will now be parking on or near the base. Parking downtown, and having to take a bus was not my preferred method.
