Re: Navy TAC Demo 2019 Status

I just <3 the Navy Tac Demo, so I hope they're back and back for good.

Also maybe Eurofighter will please wise up ...

Re: Why do we rarely see bombers flying during air shows?

Going to Travis' show for several reasons. One of which is to see the C-5 Galaxy fly out of its own base.
