There are rumors that the CF-18 team has canceled all but one US appearance to reduce the demand on the pilot, but we haven't been able to confirm them. I don't know what the remaining show would be, either.EricP wrote: ↑Sun Feb 26, 2017 4:11 amI noticed that the CF-18 demo team is no longer listed on the Planes of Fame Airshow website. Previously, I had wondered if the CF-18 had two demo teams much like the USN F/A-18 demo teams (East and West Coast) as the CF-18 schedule showed that they were going to be at McEntire JNGB. Appears as though they will no longer be at Chino, but it will still be a great show!
Wow...interesting! Guess I would have to make it to either Windsor in May or London in September if I want to see it. Oh darn, another airshow to attend!RyanS wrote: ↑Sun Feb 26, 2017 5:18 amThere are rumors that the CF-18 team has canceled all but one US appearance to reduce the demand on the pilot, but we haven't been able to confirm them.

Life is not a journey to the grave intending of arriving safely in a well preserved body but rather to skid in broadside used up worn out and loudly proclaiming; Damn, what a ride!

Many of you have been waiting for an announcement as to the status of the Planes of Fame Air Show. The April 20, 2017 hearing regarding the injunction request against the Planes of Fame 2017 Airshow has been continued by the court to April 28.
Steve Hinton, President of Planes of Fame has told us “We remain optimistic regarding the outcome of the upcoming hearing and we remain confident that the show will go on as planned.”
We understand that the hearing will be 8 days before the Planes of Fame Air Show and we want to assure you that your overwhelming support throughout this situation has strengthened our determination and resolve to save the Air Show. We are in the final weeks of the Air Show preparation and the details, arrangements and commitments are already in place. People have made travel plans from all over the U.S and the world. This Air Show is a huge investment in terms of people, time and resources.
All of the performers, sponsors, vendors and volunteers are steadfast in their commitment to supporting the Air Show and are excited to be here the weekend of May 6 & 7. We should have 5 Corsairs in attendance as well as an Air Force F-35 – plus at least 40 or more other aircraft.

CHINO, CA — The group of plaintiffs filing suit against Planes of Fame have withdrawn the motion for a preliminary injunction of the 2017 air show. This action will allow the air show to proceed as planned on May 6th and 7th, 2017. The plaintiffs will continue legal action in their pursuit of fair operations for future air shows at the Chino Airport.
“We do not want others to be harmed, as we have been every year, by the unfair actions of Planes of Fame. We decided to drop the preliminary injunction for the sake of attendees and vendors – those who have purchased tickets, those who have made travel arrangements, and those who are there to sell goods, services, and food. We hope to see a change in the way Planes of Fame operates this year’s air show now that a light has been shed on the ongoing issues they have refused to resolve,” said Christen Wright, Director of Yanks Air Museum.
The plaintiffs filed suit against Planes of Fame last month after numerous attempts to resolve ongoing issues that have worsened in recent years. The plaintiffs allege that these issues include intentional attempts to physically block and obstruct their businesses before, during, and after the air show. The decision to withdraw the motion for a preliminary injunction was made after the original hearing scheduled on April 20th was postponed to April 28th because of a conflict with the original judge assigned to the case.
“We were getting too close to the air show. We tried to start conversations with Planes of Fame immediately after the 2016 air show but they were unwilling to sit down and create a binding agreement. We were tired of having meetings where they would agree to a plan and then not keep their word. Even after filing suit, they made no effort to resolve this out of court,” said Michael Thayer, President of Flying Tigers Aviation.
