This show always has great statics. The AC-130 returns; I got to go in the one they had in 2022. The Storch is a really cool addition. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one before.

Re: 2024 Charleston Airshow “Heroes of Flight"

Parking Pass policy was updated. Once again, they are going with the strategy of only allowing one pass per order, meaning they want people to pick either Saturday Sunday to attend. Additionally, it appears the Red/Blue parking lots are no longer a thing. Honestly, I'm not sure what the benefit of t...

Re: USMC AV-8B Harrier II Demonstration Team Final Air Show Season in 2024?

Something that’s been suspected for a while now. There was some speculation that the demo at Cleveland last year might have been the last one. There is no schedule for 2024, so Cherry Point will be the only demo this year. One thing I’ll point out is this is just for the USMC’s demo team. The Spanis...

Re: 2024 MCAS Cherry Point Air Show

Some statics are now listed on the website. One that sticks out to me is the MQ-9 Reaper.

Re: 2024 USAF F-22 Raptor Demo Team Airshow Schedule

Looks like a different routine this year. Power loop goes straight into the high alpha pass. No tailslide. Video from Spencer Hughes.

Re: 2024 Charleston Airshow “Heroes of Flight"

Doc is Static only, but that's still amazing. Never seen a B-29 in person.

Re: USMC AV-8B Harrier II Pilot Becomes First American Ace Since The Vietnam War

Updating as it appears there may have been some miscommunication by BBC. The pilot “intercepted” the drones, but it’s unclear if any were downed. https://www.twz.com/air/marine-corps-av-8b-harrier-pilot-downed-seven-drones-report https://www.forbes.com/sites/erictegler/2024/02/27/the-marine-fighter-...

Re: 2024 MCAS Cherry Point Air Show

Does anyone know why this show skews so heavily on civilian acts, whereas Yuma is more the opposite? Is there no MAGTF demo at this show? I was under the impression every major Marine base does one for their airshow. Believe that is the second “performer to be announced” as that’s a 2 hour block. F...
