That seems wrong, that is Will Ward and I don't think he'd go all that way just for a show. His jet is in Illinois-ish currently so that'd be quite a long haul.

(Not saying you're wrong, likely just a mis-tag in the calendar or I could be wrong!)

Perhaps it's possible that he'll fly a MiG-17 that is based out on the west coast.
