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.

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...
