Given the recent news about the USAF committing to bringing many aircraft to OSH as well as another show (likely Louisville) we will see more jets for sure. Louisville is getting the B-2, B-52, T-38, F-16, F-15, A-10, KC-46, and more. The B-2 was already announced for OSH. I’m almost certain the 115th out of MSN will bring their F-16s as this will be their last year flying the viper before switching to F-35s. Keep an eye out for an announcement in may or June, but I’m certain we will get a good amount of military action.burnersreadynow wrote: ↑Thu Dec 30, 2021 3:21 am In terms of the fast movers... it seems only the USAF Lightning Demo Team and Navy Growler Demo Team are confirmed. None of the other USAF ACC Demos are going to be there. Seems odd considering it's the 75th of the USAF. Some speculations though...
1. Viper Demo will be in Milwaukee, WI from Jul 23-24 (including the 22nd as a practice day)... just ahead of OSH. Thereafter they head to Dayton, OH for a Jul 30-31 show (including the 29th as a practice day). Maybe they will stop by for a few days? Not sure though, as their crew probably needs a good rest and some time to set up ahead of their Dayton show.
2. Raptor Demo will be in Cold Lake, AB, Canada from Jul 16-17 (including 15th as a practice day) and doesn't have a show until Jul 30-31 (including the 29th as a practice day) all the way up in Alaska. Weird gap around OSH... maybe for a visit? But their Alaska show is a ways away and would probably require extra time for their crew to head up there, cutting into the time they could be at OSH.
Looks like our only hope is VFA-106 or 122 comes through with the Super Hornet, VFA-125 comes with the F-35C, or we just have other military squadrons doing small flybys/arrival low approaches.
Thoughts, insight, anyone?
