(Ex: B-25 Mitchell ’Yankee Warrior’). Thanks if you can answer that.
I think we can assume the Hellcat is the one from Fagen Fighters that had it's first post restoration flight last month.

Two T-33 Shooting Stars
Skyraider
C-47
Corsair
Hellcat
T-6s
Aeroshell is flying Friday night and Saturday.

Sounds like normal format too. Less than a month to go!

Due to the fly-in nature of the event, we can't really give a firm "yes" on an aircraft list, but we should have some verbals after this weekend.

As am I. I’ve never seen this aircraft appear at any other shows so this plane will definitely be getting a lot of attention. Makes me excited as to what else might appear at the show.
