So to me it looks like these are the shows which lost the F-35 demo due to the engine issues:

Cocoa Beach, FL (replaced by F-22)
Redlands, CA (Presumably this actually refers to Hangar24 in San Bernadino?)
Hillsboro, OR (Show canceled)
Smyrna, TN
La Crosse, WI
Owensboro, KY (replaced by F-16)
Montreal, Canada
Sanford, FL
NAS Pensacola, FL

The F-35 Lightning II will be getting new engines.

Did anyone else try the link above?
I got pop-up ads for various junk, and warnings of potential viruses, etc.

Not good considering the F-35 is or will be our backbone fighter for years to come. 270 have been delivered of 1,763 planned. Should have gone with the GE engine.

The F-35 may be facing another problem in the form of this article.

Looks like the F-35A Demo Team has the Deke Slayton Airfest back on their schedule.

Dan made an excellent point that Chicago is no longer on the list, so I've removed it from the schedule.

The Chicago show is unlikely to happen this year anyway
