Wow this show has really been under the radar compared to most others in this forum. Deserves much more attention!

I agree, one of the better line ups I've seen this year! I wasn't even thinking about going to it until I saw this schedule. Still will be interested in watching what Nellis is going to come up with this year. I am doubtful I could pull off both that close together, so I'll have to decide.

While I am still planning on going to this show...last weekend they finally updated their site and served up a big gut punch by removing the U-2 fly-by, and all three USAF bombers fly-bys (B-1B, B-52, B-2) that really sucks. I see the U-2 is still listed on ACC's website to flyover the USAF Academy football game that day...so it is flying around that day for sure, maybe it will still show.

Yeah, man. I was hoping that maybe they'd still sneak the flyovers in somehow. Definitely takes the show down a notch but the CV-22 and MC-130 demo ought to be legit. We'll see!

Had a great time in San Antonio for the show. Weather didn't cooperate in the mornings, but usually cleared up. We spent Friday & Sunday on the north end of the base off of the outer road of Hwy. 90, on Saturday we went in for the show and statics. Nice surprise was a Lockheed T-50A static, cool to see one in person. They did end up having the B-1B fly-by on Saturday, but no heads up from the announcers, so unfortunately I missed getting any pictures of it. Here are a handful of pictures I took from the weekend. Thanks!
