Re: TBM Avenger Reunion Salute To Veterans

Last two.

If the night run of the TBMs is going to be an annual event, I will have to make it an overnight trip next time. That would have been cool to see!

Re: TBM Avenger Reunion Salute To Veterans

This show has the absolute worst luck with weather. I got up early, decided I was stubborn and dumb enough to make the drive despite the forecast and went anyway. I didn't know about the cancellation because I left at 7 a.m. That was kind of a surprise, but I got directed to park in the remote lot t...

Re: TBM Avenger Reunion Salute To Veterans

A PBY would be great! It's been ages since I've seen one fly other than the arrival of the Canadian Warplane Heritage example at Oshkosh a few years ago. I was hoping Tri-State Warbird Museum would send the FW-190 but it sounds like they're sending the B-25 with the TBM, which will still be cool. On...

Re: EAA Air Venture Oshkosh 2021

I personally don't care about drones of any size, shape or performance, but given the seeming rarity of public appearances, I'm assuming the MQ-9 will cause some excitement. Selfishly, I wish Oshkosh would move up a week. I have an annual commitment that usually falls during Oshkosh and limits me to...

Re: EAA Air Venture Oshkosh 2021

AFSOC aircraft announced. I'm sure a lot of people will be excited about the MQ-9. I will personally miss these unless they arrive earlier than Thursday. https://www.eaa.org/airventure/eaa-airventure-news-and-multimedia/eaa-airventure-news/eaa-airventure-oshkosh/05-06-2021-wide-range-of-us-air-force...

Re: Sound of Speed Open House & Air Show 2021

The idea that any camera lens is a "security issue" for any show is laughable, and I don't even have a DSLR.
