Re: COVID and the 2021 season

New York Fleet Week has been canceled again for this year. Not surprising. Navy cannot allow public to infect their ships. I expect military base shows to be canceled. Again, military cannot allow public to infect their sailors, airmen, Marines and soldiers. Private shows will probably be drive-in ...

Re: COVID and the 2021 season

It is still early in the airshow season, so there may be time to get much of the population vaccinated, which would be good for events of all types

Did anyone else try the link above?

COVID and the 2021 season

Last year I was in the early stages of planning a trip to England, with RIAT and RNIAD being the top of my list of To Do items. We know how that ended... So now that RIAT has just been cancelled for this year, I'm wondering how many other shows will get spiked this year. With the Canada/USA border c...

Re: Point Mugu Air Show 2020

I have my doubts about this show. They don't have a dedicated website, even the most basic of sites. They do have a FB page, as part of the base FB page, but the airshow part doesn't seem to be monitored. https://www.facebook.com/NavalBaseVenturaCounty/photos/a.395578757135444/3418110878215535/ As M...
