Heritage flight I believe will be Charles hainline and the p-51 bumsteer. He frequents these shows in the south since lee lauderbeck no longer does them.

The Sea Harrier team has been discussing some health issues with a couple of team members on their Facebook page, and I get the feeling it is doubtful they will be able to make it to Melbourne this weekend.

I'll be headed out first thing in the morning, with a shiny new video camera in tow! Hoping to also catch the SpaceX launch on Thursday night!

Caught the F-35 arrival today, just a single overhead with no burner. Kind of lame.

The TFR times for the show are 1030 to 11 and 1130 to 5 Fri and 11 to 5 on Sat and Sun.
