Sounds like the Blues Advance team will be making their winter visit this afternoon at Niagara Falls ARS. No ETA is given due to OPSEC.
Excited to host U.S. Navy Blue Angels advance team scheduled to fly in this afternoon for a site survey. It'll be the first time they've landed here since 2004. Glad to have 'em back. Be sure to follow Thunder of Niagara Air Show for updates on next year's show!

Rob Holland will be attending the Thunder of Niagara Airshow.
Looking forward to the Niagara Falls Airshow in June. This was at the last Niagara Falls show leading in two Super Hornets from VFA-106 in for the overhead break after a photo shoot. Airshow - Thunder Over Niagara

Word on the street is that Niagara cancelled just within the last few hours. I expect an official post soon.

I'm disappointed, I was planning to go and it was probably my only chance to see the Snowbirds this year :cry:

Just received the newsletter about the Cancellation Notice, I'm pretty bummed out about that notice, I was also thinking about having plans to visit the airshow since it seemed like a good line-up of performers (i.e Blue Angels, Snowbirds, CF-18 Demo Team, and Viper Demo Team), but the likelihood is the Candian performers (In a futuristic scenario that the show was to occur this summer) would have been staged in Toronto, ON due to the International travel restrictions put in effect still and so forth. So, probably wouldn't be worth it since the travel restrictions would still be in place by then, not to mention to see the jets up close on the ground :( .
