That's a good list Bingofuel. Forgot about it but MAKS happens to be another one of those I'd like to attend someday. I'm hoping to make it to Radom, Poland in 2021.

Differently want to head to MAKS to see the aircraft you listed almost all the Russian Air Force aircraft in their arsenal will be participating in the Show, most likely to the New Sukhoi Su-57 "Felon.

Anyone still have this so-called: Hybrid Event" on their bucket list? Higer has mentioned performers will still be the same so still on my list 2020 since the USAF Thunderbirds are signed on, and a rumor that another one of USAF ACC jet teams will sign on as well.

Here's my tentative list for next year.

- May 1st: Manassas, Virginia "Leaseweb Manassas Airshow"
- May 29th-30th: Latrobe, Pennsylvania "Westmoreland County Airshow" ft. US Navy Blue Angels
- June 4th-6th: Reading, Pennsylvania "World War II Weekend"
- September 18th-19th: NAS Oceana, Virginia "NAS Oceana Airshow" ft. US Navy Blue Angels

My summer airshow will be decided by early next year depending on the COVID-19 situation. May do one either in the US or Europe.

WWII weekend is a good show no regrets or doubts. However, it's better to visit it when the P-61 Black Widow project is done. Just see a beautiful Night Strike Fighter to take to the sky's.

I believe this is going to use social media aspects and be more virtual. Real planes, but you have to watch from home.
