Some great acts but it looks like it will be a short show. Only good thing is that it is close to my house.

Just looked at the website and it is listing the USAF F-35A Demo Team and Randy W Ball. The USAF F-35A Demo Team does NOT have Gary listed on their website.

It’s not on their schedule yet but the F-35 Demo Team will be performing.

Randy Ball in the MiG-17F and Trojan Thunder T-28s added as well!

Friday the weather was perfect for the practice show but I was not able to make it. Saturday it started to rain after 2 acts but most of the acts flew. Sunday after a 2 hour delay because of mist and low ceilings only 2 acts flew before they cancelled it.

Nice pics! Cool to see the flare dumps by the F-35. I think this was a first. I hope Chicago will allow that for its F-16 demo.
