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...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

The word from TOM is out (to members at least) and they are indeed moving to a drive-in format for 2021. They have also added a new wrinkle which I think will frustrate most hardcore fans: The show will be split into a morning session (featuring the F-35 demo) and an afternoon session (featuring th...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

One thing to keep in mind is that some states (or local governments) may have attendance restrictions at events. Perhaps YAM is at a point where they feel comfortable with what they have sold under what current guidance says and will release more ticket sales if/when there is more clarity on what at...

Re: America's Freedom Fest (Goshen, IN) 2021 (RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 28TH?)

I really hope that is true. I'm a little skeptical given what has transpired over the last year-plus, but hopefully they can indeed pull off a new date this year. This is a fun show and it would be a welcome addition to my plans with a new date.
