Tentative list of performers for this year. Pretty typical lineup for Waukegan that includes the home debut of the new WHF Corsair. Also nice to see Jeff Kaney in the lineup with both the F-5 and MiG-17.

TBM Avenger scratched. There will be a second Skyraider taking its place.

I will be at this one! It worked out where they could help me with some good access and I will help them with some videos. Excited for a day of warbirds :)

Also one of my favorite shows - with so many other regional shows having gone away, it's nice to have the WHF continuing to be the backbone for this one. And hey, new Corsair!

Nice little show. Awesome to see the TBM Avenger and Corsair. Jeff Kaney, although listed with his F-5, Mig 17 never showed up. Same as previous years. I don't know why they keep adding him to the schedule. A-4 Skyhawk was cool to see and flew in heritage flight fashion with the Corsair.

Fun day at Waukegan yesterday. It was great to see the Corsair fly multiple times, including with the A-4. I also really enjoyed the jet warbird flight, as well as the Avenger and Skyraider flight. I thought the A-4 demo was lacking compared to other years - kind of stupid to launch it an hour early for minimal fly-bys. Other than that small complaint, it was another good year.
