Awesome stuff Gerry! Great line-up and sunny weather all weekend! Hats off to you and your crew. Betting there will be record crowds too, which will be great.

Can't wait for Friday!

Good evening.

Crazy day in the Airshow world.

Unfortunately we had a "Hurricane" of cancelations today.
The C5M, C17, P3 and P8 all cancelled due to Hurricane relief and alert operations. Tough day after we put a lot of work into the show.

On the positive.

Twilight show is how I posted it.
You can add the CT155s and CT156s to the sked.

Some very exciting news for the fans going on Sunday!

The F22s and US Navy F35C will be now be performing flybys during the show.

Sorry about the bad news. We were extremely disappointed as a team to announce this.

Sundays additions should be pretty awesome.

Those cancellations are totally understandable and there are people that need the help more than we need to see them.Still an awesome show nothing to be disappointed about at all.
