In the sense of a live stream? Cleveland has not had anything in the past, but we may be doing some Facebook live streams from there. Depends how it works out!

The weather didn't co operate much but most of the show performances were flown however the Patrouille de France team had to cut their routine short when the conditions (which changed rather quickly) became unsafe. It would have been nice for them to swap their schedule with the Snowbirds since we won't have an opportunity to see them again & we get to see the Snowbirds almost every season.

Props to you Larry for braving the cold and rain. I was watching on the live stream and was glad I wasn't there! It's too bad the French couldn't put on their full show. It's quite the neat treat for North America.

It wasn't fun waiting it out but as I said to the friend that went with me if we'd have had that same day in the fall we would have thought we were freezing & given up but after enduring winter it wasn't so bad. Thankfully it looks like rain drops on the lenses didn't ruin any of the photos but so far I've only taken a quick at most of them. These represent most of the performance by the PdF.

For anyone interested my event album is on line now here. All flying photos shot either a Canon 7D2 or 1D4 sharing a Sigma 150-600 C or Canon 28-300 L IS. Everything was shot in RAW & processed in CS6 & Camera RAW.
