Dang. I better not have much to do that weekend. Saturday is day & night show in Lakeland at Sun N Fun. I'm definitely hitting Cocoa Beach on Sunday, assuming the bombers fly on Sunday, too.
I'm considering Cocoa Beach, but also kind of hoping the bombers visit Sun n Fun while they're in the area!

Are there good spots to watch from without premium tickets? Especially away from speakers

Honestly, I've never been to a beach airshow here (or anywhere). There should be plenty of parking around the Cocoa Beach area and walk to the beach. We were thinking of making a beach day of it. Going early, finding a place near-ish the paid seating, reading a book and waiting for the flying. Yes, I'm hoping that Sun N Fun can get them to flyby, so I don't "have" to go to Cocoa.

Defining the factors that the A-10 Demo Team will now support Cocoa Beach, and TOL is currently in aerobatic box category 3, likely means the F-22 Raptor Demo Team will withdraw their support since now that show has finally received a full demo team and not have to compromise Sun N' Fun with the Raptor Demo Team, thus making it easier for both shows. Unless that is, the Raptor Demo Team decides to go in that direction to show full commitment at performing two FL shows over the same weekend, however same region (Orlando). I'll still keep the demo team on here until one of the officials confirm that.

I see no reason why the Raptor won't fly at both shows as originally planned

If I’m not mistaken the F-22 Demo team done something similar in 2019 when they flew 2 shows on the same weekend in Rome, GA and at Atlanta Motor Speedway. They staged out of a central location at Dobbins ARB.

So I don’t see why they wouldn’t perform both shows.

Well, it seems like I will be heading out to the beach for the Cocoa Beach Airshow on Sunday, weather permitting. I was hoping the B-52 and B-1 could flyby Sun 'N Fun in Lakeland on Saturday, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Now, with the A-10 coming to Cocoa, I don't think I have a choice. Saturday in Lakeland for day & night show, then Sunday at Cocoa Beach.

The latest addition to the line-up is the C-17 Globemaster III Demo Team based out of JB Lewis-McChord, Washington.
