I'm hoping to make it down for this one as my one chance to see the French while they're here.

I've been told that the show has announced a B-25 demo, presumably Panchito, and seems to be teasing up to 3 military jet demos.

Melbourne is listed on the F-35 Heritage Flight schedule, but no other ACC demos. They were teasing three jet demos so I assume that means the Sea Harrier, F-35, and a Hornet.

And you forgot Greg Colyer and his T-33 as a jet demo also...

According to their Facebook page they have added an F-35 demo and F/A-18 demo. Two jet teams, the SHAR, F/A-18F & F-35 is a lot of metal in the air for one show. Hope I can make it down for it!

What aircraft will be available for an F-35 "Heritage Flight" since there are no aircraft on that schedule which would seemingly be able to do a Heritage Flight?

And glad to see that the Thunderbirds are last on the schedule sequence for Saturday. Hopefully I can make a getaway after the F-35 flybys.
