Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

From their website, the tickets are sold out for Saturday. I still plan to go on Sunday, but on the beach somewhere mostly so I can see the B-52 and B-1. Plus the A-10 demo. Speaking of the A-10, I wonder if we'll get flares? Haven't seen that before.

Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

Well, it seems like I will be heading out to the beach for the Cocoa Beach Airshow on Sunday, weather permitting. I was hoping the B-52 and B-1 could flyby Sun 'N Fun in Lakeland on Saturday, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Now, with the A-10 coming to Cocoa, I don't think I have a choice. Sa...

Re: SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo 2021

Just got my media credential approved for Sun n Fun 21 and have got about a million questions to ask. I've never been to Sun n Fun but have been going to Oshkosh for a number of years now. How is it camping at SNF for those that have been? Are there any electrical hookups so that if i brought an ex...

Additional jet noise in the form of a USAF B-1B Lancer! :D https://cocoabeachairshow.com/performer-line-up/ Dang. I better not have much to do that weekend. Saturday is day & night show in Lakeland at Sun N Fun. I'm definitely hitting Cocoa Beach on Sunday, assuming the bombers fly on Sunday, t...

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

Contemplating a trip to Florida. How are the statics at this show? Also important to note that the display location is important. When they had it in 2019, it was at the southern end of the field, and as such, the only concrete surfaces are runway 5 and the adjacent taxiway. There were maybe 6 stat...

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

Contemplating a trip to Florida. How are the statics at this show? This is the first time this group is putting on a show in Melbourne. Previously, shows here were pretty light on statics, maybe a helo from the USAF 920th Rescue Squadron plus a few others. I believe this year the Valiant Air Comman...

Re: Great Florida Air Show 2021

Just checked and the one-day pass General Admission tickets are $50 each. That's a bit higher than what I'm used to, but given the current lineup, I'm inclined to go anyway. The website does state that there's a limited number of GA tickets available each day. I'm assuming that is due to COVID proto...

Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

Where are they staging for the show? I would assume the Thunderbirds will stage from Patrick AFB. I'm also assuming the Raptor will stage from Lakeland (Sun N Fun) since it's supporting both shows.I'm not sure about the civilian acts. Possibly TICO airport, where the Valiant Air Command is based an...

Re: 2021 Cocoa Beach Airshow

B-52 Stratofortress has been added to the lineup. LUCKY. Crap, sort of. I'll be at SunNFun all day on Saturday. I don't think I'll be able to then spend Sunday up at Cocoa Beach. Now, I may have to since I can't remember that last time I saw a B-52 fly in-person. Edit - since the F-22 Raptor is per...
