A preliminary schedule from the March 2017 EAA Warbirds Magazine-
Monday- Warbirds Mass Arrivals
Tuesday- 1 hour warbird airshow featuring all types and formations
Wednesday- Celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raid. As many of the B-25s as possible will fly in the Tuesday airshow followed by a recovery to Warbird Alley to be parked as the were on the carrier in April 1942. The B-25s will launch on Wednesday afternoon from the Alley with a mass takeoff. Our Warbirds line crew and re-enactors will be positioned next to the runway to flag them off. Dick Cole is scheduled for Warbirds in Review at 1pm Wednesday when the B-25s will be parked on Warbird Alley
Thursday- 30 minute airshow featuring the Jets
Friday and Saturday- 1 hour warbird airshow featuring all types and formations.

Sounds promising that Doc will be at AirVenture based on this article. Just preliminary right now, but AirVenture was specifically mentioned. It will be interesting to see where else Doc makes an appearance this year.
