The shows looking great right now I reached out to Cabo a few weeks ago and asked if he is gonna practice on the 3rd and he said he was gonna but you never know.
The F-22 will be in Battle Creek, MI, and Dubuque, IA, on July 3rd for HF flights only... Pretty busy day!

If the B52 does get approved will it do practice passes on the 3rd?
Usually the flyovers are part of practice sorties, hitting time on target etc. So flyovers are almost always just day of the main show.

We're trying to link of a B52 with two other shows that day--- one of which is Battle Creek. Right now if anything practices, it will only be the F18 and F22.

Some worries here...

With virus threat, many sponsors are hesitant and record lake floods have taken away our beach. Not looking the most positive...

Very sorry to hear that, I would have hoped you'd be far enough out to be ok. Lots of bad news today

Yeah...i mean the threat should be over by then, but a lot of sponsors are holding tight now because of the situation--- that's not ideal for a first time show.

Not over yet, but not looking the best either.

We should have an answer about the show sometime next week. We are not the most hopeful. We are not sure how far out the threat of the virus will last and a lot of support that was pledged for the show is being held on tightly now because of the uncharted waters we are all in right now. This kind of thing hurts a first time show. I will keep everyone updated on here.
