Will be interesting to see how it plays out with the A-10 demo team for this show. They are still listed as performing at Cocoa Beach on the actual ACC schedule, but the A-10 is not currently listed as a performer at either show on their official websites. Unless Cocoa Beach is cancelled I would be a bit surprised if they are at Key West, but who knows..

Something to note here is that when you click on the legacy flight link it references that the F-18 will be from VFA-106. Since there is no mention of a Rhino demo this begs the question, will VFA-106 only be doing legacy flights rather than full tac demos in 2023?

I know on previous years the West coast team only did legacy flights and then last year went back to both the East and West teams doing full demos. I believe this often depends on ops tempo and detachments so will be interesting to see how this plays out for the upcoming season.

The A-10 Demo Team will be sticking to their originally scheduled appearance at Cocoa Beach.
