Re: SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo 2021

Live stream on Live Airshow TV looks good. Nice to way to pass the last couple hours of the work week.

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

I got the email too. We bought three tickets and got one complimentary car pass. I think we'll probably just go in the morning because I think it's likely to be an easier experience with traffic and we're probably more likely to get a better parking spot. We'll live with whatever we miss out on in t...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

This is the airshow I most expected to pivot to a drive-in format. I'm absolutely open to going to a drive-in show and was expecting to go to at least one this year, but having to choose between a different morning/afternoon lineup or pay that price for both doesn't sound even remotely appealing. It...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

The word from TOM is out (to members at least) and they are indeed moving to a drive-in format for 2021. They have also added a new wrinkle which I think will frustrate most hardcore fans: The show will be split into a morning session (featuring the F-35 demo) and an afternoon session (featuring th...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

One thing to keep in mind is that some states (or local governments) may have attendance restrictions at events. Perhaps YAM is at a point where they feel comfortable with what they have sold under what current guidance says and will release more ticket sales if/when there is more clarity on what at...

Re: America's Freedom Fest (Goshen, IN) 2021 (RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 28TH?)

I really hope that is true. I'm a little skeptical given what has transpired over the last year-plus, but hopefully they can indeed pull off a new date this year. This is a fun show and it would be a welcome addition to my plans with a new date.

Re: Possible Return Of Muskegon Air Fair

Muskegon Air Fair was a big part of my summer growing up. I have family in the area and we'd go stay with them during airshow week, then my Dad and I would go to the show on the weekend. Muskegon is the first place I ever saw a Lancaster, the Heritage Flight and the Blue Angels and it was the last p...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

I read that Scooter was attending TOM, Was he bringing his P-51 "Quicksilver" or a F-4 Corsair? I've been hearing mixed reports. The Instagram story with his schedule release said "Legacy Flight Only." Not sure whether that means he'll be flying "Korean War Hero" or an...

Re: Yankee Air Museum's B-25 Getting New Paint Scheme and Name

Sounds like the new nose art is going to be revealed tomorrow. Django Studios is doing the work. The artist has done some other nice nose art over the years. Looking forward to seeing it!
