Re: TBM Avenger - Aircraft of the Month - May 2017

A few of my favorites. Looking forward to the Avenger gathering next Saturday! Got a little preview seeing Charlie Cartledge's TBM at Findlay Air Expo last weekend - pics of his wing fold demo below.

Re: Heavy Bombers Weekend?

That's a real shame to hear. Hopefully if it isn't held this year, it's just a one-year hiatus. I went each of the last two years and had a great time. Being able to get close to the aircraft when they start up and taxi was better than just about any of the airshows I go to.

Re: Doolittle Raid 75th Anniversary at NMUSAF - Including B-1 Flyover

Great photos and videos everyone! All I shot were static photos on the runway at NMUSAF, nowhere near the quality of these. Always cool to relive the event by seeing everyone's work.

Re: Doolittle Raid 75th Anniversary at NMUSAF - Including B-1 Flyover

That's a big help. Thanks! I'm not into taking photos when they're in the air, just want to be in a good spot to enjoy the moment. It looks like the museum is parking people in a different area for the B-25 static display, so getting parking at the museum afterwards might be a bit of a pain dependin...

Re: Doolittle Raid 75th Anniversary at NMUSAF - Including B-1 Flyover

I wanted to go to Urbana this weekend, but it didn't work out. I will be at NMUSAF to look at the B-25s Tuesday morning and am planning on staying for the B-25 and B-1 fly-overs. I'm not sure what the best vantage point for the fly-over will be, but I am planning on watching it from somewhere on the...

Re: Red Arrows To Leave UK In Sept/Oct Timeframe - Possible US Tour?

Airshow London would make a lot of sense if they're coming to North America. Big international presence, strong military lineup and an appearance for Canada 150 could make that something that's in the works.

Heavy Bombers Weekend?

Anyone know if the Heavy Bombers Weekend event in Janesville/Madison, WI is happening this year? I see that the EAA B-17 is scheduled to be in Madison the weekend before Oshkosh, and the CAF Airpower Tour will be in Janesville Aug. 16-20, but can't find any more info. The HBW Facebook page and websi...

Re: Horsemen Flight Team 2017 Schedule

Hope the info on the P-38 with two P-51s is true! That would awesome to see! It's been a long time since I've seen formation aerobatics with dissimilar warbird types.
