Hope they get the F-22 Demo Team.

The runway very close to crowd line makes for some great photos.

We will know at ICAS convention in 2 weeks.

You got your wish. The F-22 Raptor Demo Team confirmed for Rhode Island. :D

Looks like the Rhode Island Open House & Airshow moved up to June 20-21 to accommodate the USAF Thunderbirds according to the ICAS calendar. Makes sense due to the Youngstown, OH airshow which was to have the Thunderbirds that weekend being cancelled.

The F-22 won't be at Rhode Island on this weekend due to the team being at the Memphis Airshow in Millington.

No F-22 because of the new dates. Sad news for Raptor fans.

I rather have the F-22 than the Thunderbirds.

Rhode Island's hot ramp at show left gives excellent access to the single ship demo teams.
