Just a moment ago on the website, people were asking about show center and who the headliner is. Unfortunately, show center is not where some hoped it'd be... "It will likely be a little further north this year as well because we are expanding the ticketed beach area to allow for better social distancing". The main event will be the F-22 Raptor Demo and the time has been changed (not surprisingly) from 12 noon to 3:30pm.

According to the website, there will be a Coast Guard search-and-rescue demo and Miss GEICO racing a GEICO Skytyper.

Wish I was. Though I really want to go next year to see the Blue Angels practice in their Super Hornets.

You can get an idea by looking up the TFR info. Tomorrow the TFR runs from 1700 UTC (noon local) to 2200 UTC (5pm local). The practice won't take up the entire time slot, and there may be big gaps in the middle, but all flying should fall within that window.

For Saturday and Sunday, the window is 12:15 to 3:30.

Good luck!
