Re: MAX lens size (Goofy military rules)

I've had my issues with NASWI and photography too. If there is an open house and if I do go, I will go with a friend and buy up the swag when the gates open - leaving the 100-400mm sigma behind - then race down to Mukilteo for the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (FHCAM) fly day at 1 PM. Th...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

If you believe the Abby Airshow App (And that's a big IF) +Erickson collection P-47 and P-38 Lightning. Awesome if it's true! Would be the first P-38 in Abbotsford since early 1980's I believe. +CH-148 Cyclone SAR demo I believe the app. It's run by the airshow society. Good to see the Cyclone ther...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Looks like they had 2 F-18F's in the legacy flight last weekend in Florida. Hopefully we get the same. VF-122 is the squadron that will supply the aircraft as per their IG page. HFF website lists Waco UPF-7, DC-3, and P-51B "Impatient Virgin" to appear at Abbotsford 2019. Looks like their...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

I just noticed that now. So the Navy Tac Demo is not scheduled for Abbotsford. I wonder why that would be on the site? The Skyraider is pictured with it, but isn't listed as a solo demo/warbirds. Because it's a Navy Legacy Flight. You'll still see a Super Hornet, it'll just be a shorter flight pair...

Heritage Flight, limited Super Hornet demo alongside a Navy warbird.

Better than nothing!

Re: BREAKING: Capt. Kotnik, first Female F-16 Viper Demo Team Commander Relieved of Position

My heart goes out to Capt. Kotnik and I'll keep to me my guesses why she was relieved. I do find it odd that a Colonel and not a General relieved her. Was going to make special plans specifically to catch her demo, now going to use that $$$ elsewhere such as going hopefully to the big Nellis AFB Ope...
