Greg Koontz added Monroe to his schedule. However the dates are either wrong or the airshow has rescheduled to the following weekend.

Looks like a full lineup this year. The organizers posted this on Facebook:
We can tell you there will surely be a few P51 mustangs, P40, C46, C54, a jet car, the Geico Skytypers, the Toro pyro team, Huey rides, B25, C47, T6's, T-28's, and much, much, more.

This Facebook post seems to confirm a Spitfire and a PBY will be performing. I would assume both are from MAM, but the event is not on their calendar. That would take the show from a maybe to a definitely for me.

I have very tentative plans to be in Asheville for a few days leading up to this show and may head over for one last airshow of 2021. This was the best airshow I attended during the two years I lived in the Asheville area and I'm hoping I can make a return visit work in conjunction with my other plans for the trip. The Spitfire and PBY are definitely selling points and, though unlikely, I'd love to see Thunder Pig fly.
