E-3 Sentry confirmed for fly-bys! Pretty rare to see this at any show, especially flying!

Im jealous down here in CA, man I hope Apple Valley can couple and probably our March ARB organizers (Postponed the "March FIeld Air & Spcae Expo 2020") can probably, (What I wish) rescheduled to drive-in format or stay initiative format, we could maybe get those couple more of the Air Combat Command or something similar, but for London, just by luck there having all 4 Air Comabt Command Jet Demo Teams espiclly when theres no Snowbirds and only flybys of CF-188's

BOOM!

They hype said it would be a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and man oh man... SOOOO awesome!

I remember the 'glory days' of the '80s shows, and the flying at this one is going to put that to shame five times over.

This is a perfect example of "finders keepers", I guess.

Great work ASL team - you're proving what can be done with guts, heart and sweat.

All this, and in my own hometown to boot! Can hardly wait!!

I noticed on IG that Cabo (F-22 demo pilot) says the teams are not being permitted on the ground in Canada so they will be basing from the US after all. Earlier comments sounded like they would base from New York, not Selfridge.

I wonder how the GK are getting around that one?

Maybe the GK are bringing back the Fulton surface-to-air recovery system and rather than landing they'll be scooped up by a C-130 streaking across the deck?

For those that can't pickup on my sarcasm across the Internet I'm TOTALLY joking.

So will it be New York, Selfridge, or both?

New York state was mentioned in an article.I would think that would be Niagara Falls but who knows unless you are a show insider at this point.I think they should use Toledo and have some F-16 escorts to the show :P

The good news is RCAF participation is supposed to be announced Thursday, hopefully some CF-18's.This show is definitely a North American RIAT like show this year!

I'm keeping my expectations low for the RCAF. Like you said, hopefully a couple of Hornets and/or CT-155s Hawks, but readiness, operations etc might hinder participation.
