I'm assuming the Erickson aircraft will be the P-38 that is coming to Thunder a couple weeks later. I noticed it will also be at Duluth. Strong lineup so far! This will be part of our July 4 weekend plans.

We are working on a few other acts right now as well as all around activities. This is shaping up to be a unique year for us.

We aren’t going to list the MV-22 Osprey Demo quite yet until we get squadron confirmation. While the Marine schedule was announced at ICAS, only a handful were primary sites per the forum. We’re fairly confident a squadron will be available but we just won’t announce it until we know for sure.

And yes, the Erickson aircraft is the P-38L Lightning “Tangerine”.
