How Many Airshows Are You Attending In 2017?

Post by RyanS » Sun Feb 12, 2017 10:58 pm

Although it is maybe a bit early to plan for the whole year, I'm curious how many airshows everyone plans to attend. Fly-ins, open houses, airshows all count!

Bonus question - what's the furthest from home you are planning to go for an airshow?

Just want to drop a post in and say thanks for creating an area for airshow fans! I'm glad to have somewhere to continue to talk airshows with the unfortunate demise of Fence Check. Here's what I have planned for '17:

May 20 - Gathering of TBMs
June 17 - CAF Wings Over Indy, Wing Over Gaylord or Youngstown Airshow
July 22-23 - Pre-Oshkosh event of some sort (Heavy Bombers Weekend or The Great Air Clinic)
July 25-27 - Airventure
August 19 or 20 - Selfridge Airshow
September 3 - Thunder Over Michigan

Also under consideration:
May 26-27 - Windsor, ON (haven't found any info yet)
May 26 - Gathering of Warbirds, Waukesha, WI
July 1 - Goshen Freedom Fest
September 30-October 1 - Danville, IL Airshow

Bonus answer: the furthest I've ever traveled for a show was the six-hour drive to Oshkosh from where I live in Indiana.

Thank you so much for having created this forum for aviation enthusiasts, after the loss of Airshowbuzz and now Fencecheck, there was a lack to fill.

April 30 : Wings over Gatineau
May 13-14: Montréal Airshow
June 24-25: Bagotville Airshow
August 12-13: Westfield Airshow

Also under consideration:
August 19-20: Chicago Air and Water show
August 26-27: The Great state of Maine Airshow
September 9-10: Kingston Airshow

Bonus Answer: It will be Westfield, i'm from Montréal, so it's 303 miles by car

Great list! But just wanted to let you know that the CAF Wisconsin's Gathering of Warbirds in Waukesha, WI is on Saturday, May 27, not 26. It should be an excellent event!

My for sure schedule right now:

Planes of Fame May 6-7
EAA AirVenture Jul 23-30
NCAR Reno Sept 14-17

I think I may add the May 27th Gathering of Warbirds in there too.

Bonus: I'm from NE Wisconsin so Planes of Fame would be the farthest away from Home per-say, but for Reno I fly into Oakland (family there) and drive over so it's actually farther distance traveled.
