I’m putting this show on my schedule just out of desperate need for shows. Hopefully Tora gets signed on.

Very cool. You are most likely right that CAF Tora! Tora! Tora! may sign on for the show, however CAF Airpower canceled their tour a few weeks ago so B-29A Superfortress "FIFI" & B-24A Liberator "Diamond lil" are fairly obvious not participating in the show. But Collings foundation B-24 Liberator "Witchcraft" and Doc's Friends B-29A Superfortress "DOC" may schedule CAF Wing Over Dallas 2020 - WWII Airshow to replace CAF Airpowers B-29A and B-24A. Not to admit, but we're all desperate for an airshow. Keep tabs in case of a scenario where they set the airshow on delay or cancellation.

I wouldn’t count on Collings anything right now after last year.

Haven't any thoughts on what happen last year, but you are right I haven't heard from the foundation in a long while. Just simply there will be no B-24 participating in this year show. Possibly DOC's Friends Inc. but that's to be determined.

I wouldn't be so surprised if FiFi was in attendance as it is practically in her backyard anyway...last I remember Diamond Lil is still grounded waiting on landing gear parts to be machined...
