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!

Re: F-15EX Officially Named The Eagle II

To be honest, that doesnt make sense to me. The "II" designation is typically used for a completely different platform and not just a new variant. But, glad everything seems to be going smoothly.

Re: Warbird Heritage Foundation 2021 Schedule

Interesting, Oceana doesn't currently have any scheduled ACC demo. Maybe a legacy flight?

Re: The Great Tennessee Air Show

Seating tickets are available starting today! That said, they are pricey. Has anybody been to this show in the past? The airport itself doesn't look very big. I'm wondering how much upfront viewing space there is outside of the premium areas or if I should just bite the bullet and buy a ticket. Edit...
