Matt Gibson confirmed on KDF's latest Thunder Thursday that the airshow does indeed have the Navy F-35C and an F-22. The F-35C I assume is with a demo team in the same manner as the Growler, and the Growler demo team, in a recent post, advised to watch out for upcoming new about the F-35C demo team. I would assume that the F-22 is more for flybys or *maybe* part of the Heritage Flight with the '16.

More news should come out tomorrow morning - but word this evening is that Thunder Over Louisville has been postponed until Saturday, August 15th. The Kentucky Derby itself has been postponed until Saturday, September 5th.

From an air show perspective, it will be interesting to see what they can put together over the next 5 months.

Honestly, very excited! They should get back full USAF support by then, with little to no worry about the virus. And, they didn't cancel it, so what's a little more waiting?
