Re: MCAS Beaufort Air Show 2021

I will say, given the current covid situation, that I have very little faith that this show will happen. But, one thing they could explore, since all of the parking area is on the airfield, is a drive-in format. They would have to refund tickets either way, so maybe not ideal for them.

Re: Wings Over Wayne (WOW '22) 2022

It looks like WOW22 will not get the Thunderbirds. This is a huge bummer, as that was part of the reason the show was delayed a year. But between the CAD, the opening ceremony, and any other activities they plan for the 4FW 80th anniversary, it will still be an action-packed show. Plus, first show f...

Re: 2019 MCAS Beaufort Air Show: April 27-28

I found my long lost Blue Angel footage from this air show a few months ago. I decided to hold on to it until the end of the year to send off their Legacy Hornets. Merry Christmas, and for the love of God, give us a better year than 2020.

Mike Wiskus Retiring(?) After 2021 Season

Mike Wiskus, pilot of the Lucas Oil Pitts Special, has seemingly dropped a bombshell announcement in a Facebook post today. 2021 will be his final air show season! If this is really what the post means, it has been a thrill seeing him at least once a year in recent memory. Original post below: This ...

Re: New Bern Air Show, December 5 2020

I reneged and went back to the old editor. Can't wrap my head around the new stuff. One thing I noticed is some weird aliasing as a result of a sharpening filter I used. Created horizontal bars when I posted the videos on other places. Hopefully they don't show up here. Also, the light flare is a ne...

Re: Preliminary 2022 US Navy Blue Angels Schedule

Surprised that Cherry Point isn’t on here. Maybe they’ll acquire the Thunderbirds, but I doubt it. In 2014, the show went on without the Blue Angels, so I’m guessing that’s what will happen again. They have an arsenal of military displays without them.

Re: New Bern Air Show, December 5 2020

So Hubie Tolson flew after all. Was a nice surprise. Great event, and I was surprised by the turnout. I am experimenting with some new editing software, so it might be a while before I make a video.
