Well, take a look at the list below because Art Nalls and his Nalls Aviation team will be bringing some Harrier action to at least seven airshows in 2017! Some of the shows will also feature the team’s black L-39 Albatros.

The Syracuse International Air Show, scheduled for this upcoming June 11-12 weekend, has secured the Nalls Aviation Sea Harrier as its headlining act. The show took quick action to book the “SHAR” after the US Navy Blue Angels canceled their performance in the wake of last week’s tragic crash of Marine Captain Jeff Kuss. Organizers decided to hold the show as a tribute to Capt. Kuss, and will donate all profits to his family. Art, like many on his team, is a former Marine and was happy to help. He will also donate a large portion of his appearance fee to the fallen angel’s family.

Many more airshows will be scrambling to find new headliners due to the unprecedented dual stand downs by the Blue Angels as well as the USAF Thunderbirds after their own crash last week. Generally a last minute cancellation is the worst thing that can happen to an airshow organization, so the shows will likely go on as scheduled. Performers like the Art Nalls and the Breitling Jet Team may get some extra calls for their services. It also remains to be seen whether the immense public spotlight that was put on airshows after the crashes will help or hurt attendance. Hopefully all of the upcoming airshows can weather the storm.
