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...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

DoD travel ban has now been extended to 30 Jun. It could be extended even further, but the flip side is it could be lifted earlier as well. Said that they will revisit the ban every 15 days to see if it needs to be changed. As of now, it doesn’t sound promising for shows scheduled up to 30 Jun that ...

Re: MCAS Miramar Air Show 2020

The website https://www.miramarairshow.com/performers/ is dated 2020, but shows the RAF Red Arrows performing. Wasn't that a one-time event last year? You are correct. The website just hasn’t been updated yet. A lot of shows wait until a couple months out or so before starting to update for the cur...

I believe it began today and runs for two weeks through 20 Mar...unless something has changed.
