Most of next year's lineup is assembled but not ready to be released yet. Next year's theme will Salute Vietnam! So expect a lot of good Vietnam era aircraft to be present, including Randy in the MiG-17.

A Vietnam theme is awesome news. I remember Selfridge doing something similar back in 2005 and it was spectacular. If the 2020 show continues to build on 2017 or comes close to what they put together the last time they did a Vietnam theme, this will be a must-see.

There is a dogfight in the works that may include the Phantom. Of course, everything has to fall into place for it to happen. I'd count on the F-100 being a part of it with the MiG-17 at the very least. But a lot is still in play :)

"Special Kay" was one of the first booked for the theme.

The plan is officially to have Randy Ball in the MiG-17 face off against the Colling's Foundation F-4 Phantom. More to come too!!
