Re: MCAS Miramar Air Show 2021 (CANCELLED)

Wow, I had my fingers crossed for September being fine, but it looks that’s still too soon. I’m guessing Oceana won’t be happening either.

Re: Chuck Aaron Aerobatics 2021 Schedule

When he performed at Warbirds Over Monroe in 2019, there were a few people saying he had retired from air shows and was only teaching aerobatics now. I don’t know if he’s coming out of retirement or what the situation is, but his display is pretty incredible. Definitely recommended if people have an...

Re: Stratolaunch: World's New Largest Plane

Stratolaunch flew this Thursday for just the second time. Evidently, it's not dead yet.

CAF C-53 "D-Day Doll" Almost Crashed in Xenia, Ohio

I just learned about this incident. This past weekend, two CAF warbirds, "That's All Brother!" and "D-Day Doll", were participating in an event in Xenia, Ohio celebrating the 100th birthday of a paratrooper. While departing to return home, "D-Day Doll" had an issue with...

Re: US Army Aviation at Airshows?

I feel very lucky to have been at the 2017 SC Guard Show at JNGB McEntire. They had some Army National Guard AH-64's participate in a Combined Arms Demo like no other. Admittedly the quality of this video is pretty bad, and I was still new to recording videos. But yeah, performances like this are on...

Re: 2021 US Navy Blue Angels Schedule

The Blues will be doing more closed practices, this time at MCAS Beaufort, through the rest of the week and into the weekend when the air show would have taken place.

Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

Evidently the TBM Avenger ditched in the water after its performance due to a mechanical issue. Pilot is okay. No injuries. Pretty lucky considering, there were a lot of people in the water where it went down. Rest of the show went on as planned. https://twitter.com/gpallone13/status/138348207611296...

Re: 2018 Wings Over Myrtle Beach

A pair of in-cockpit videos of the Viper Demo at Myrtle Beach was uploaded recently. I thought those high-speed passes looked close in person!
