Re: 2019 USAF F-35A Demo Team Schedule

Massive schedule change published by the team today, this post has been updated to match. New shows in bold and canceled shows struckthrough. July has been emptied except for a trip to Alaska. I wonder if this is to provide a window for a trip overseas?

Stand by for updates...the F-35 team deleted their latest schedule post so some of these changes are likely accidental.

Having seen their display practice, an appearance in the UK would be most welcome.

Not expecting it though.

Thanks, took them long enough to fix that issue. Glad to see all but St. Louis added back on!

Schedule and calendar updated.

We got a sneak peek of the new demo routine at the Heritage Flight Conference in Tucson. Unfortunately we could only film from off site but here are two videos of the full routine!

Good morning!

Newbie here to the forum! However, I am getting to see the US debut of their show at the Melbourne, FL show this weekend (practice today!). I usually can find the radio frequencies for the headliner, but I haven't seen anything published on this team. Does anyone know if they use anything other than show boss freq?

Welcome! Solid question.

The single ship demo teams do use a discrete freq in the military (UHF) band. Usually 3xx.xx. it's nothing super awesome to listen to, usually the pilot calls out his altitide and airspeed before each maneuver and the safety pilot replies "continue" if it's within parameters. I stopped tuning them in years ago so I don't have the freq, sorry.

The Heritage Flight also uses a discrete which is in the civilian VHF range. I am not sure if this is somewhat consistent or changes at each show site, but again very little is said on it so I just stay on airboss.

That's what I figured, but it never hurts to ask. I may try to scan just for fun while at work. Thank you for the info!
