Re: CenterPoint Energy Dayton Air Show 2021

I had made plans with some friends and bought one of the 'front row' drive-in tickets so that we could all sit together and not race to beat the crowds. I am glad that they will be able to return to a normal show but now that I can't save a good seat I doubt I'll make the drive down. We'll see how ...

Re: CenterPoint Energy Dayton Air Show 2021

Dayton Air Show organizers just announced a return to a normal show format complete with static aircraft. Sounds as though regular tickets will go on sale soon, if not already, and all drive in tickets will be refunded. Will be great to have a normal show again.

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

I was there and saw it happen, but my vantage point was the other side of the runway from where this video was shot. I noticed a few puffs of smoke during engine run-up before they took to the runway, but didn't think anything of it until after this happened. It was pretty windy that day also and ne...

Re: NAF El Centro Festival of Flight 2021 [Virtual Event Only]

Are the Blue Angels still doing their winter training sessions? If they are, do you know approximately which days they practice (is it M-F) and what times? I live in Phoenix and was going to make the drive to El Centro if they are and if it is easy to see and photograph them. I would be grateful fo...

Re: USN F-18F Rhino Demo Team & F-35C Airshow Team 2021 Schedule

Wow - if true, that announcement will be a lot earlier than previous years. Typically it's around the March timeframe. Maybe they were able to clear scheduling and funding hurdles a lot earlier with no show season in 2020 due to COVID.

Re: Blue Angel Super Hornet Photos!

They don't use smoke with burners, anyway, color or not. And... broken link in the first post. Oh, well. They actually do use smoke with the burners on...it's just not visible while the burners are lit. Case in point is the Blue Angels takeoff maneuvers (diamond half squirrel cage or just the loop)...

Re: Dayton Air Show 2020

Also, just going off a normal airshow scenario, anyone expect more performers added to the list? I think the show is in serious jeopardy right now after what I read Saturday. The DoD extended their travel ban to 30 Jun which would mean no military participation at the show. The DoD did state that t...
