    They will not fly at the cherry festival. Too late in their scheduling. Not just for them for for the festival to make those changes.

  6. Bill Kent

    When will the Thunderbirds be coming back to Randolph Airforce Base in Texas ?

    • George

      Yeah, what’s the story?
      Two years in a row with nothing in the Northwest.

  7. Randy van Vliet

    Saw them today, March 4th, 2019, do a Fly By in Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, buzzed VNY tower, did a lap, then smoke before landing for a refuel? Maybe they did a refuel over by Pt. Mugu, NAWS ? Doing a Promotion for a Captain Marvel movie release in Hollywood this evening after 5 pm.

  11. USAF Vet

    No air shows in almost the entire Midwest and middle of the USA? Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Iowa, etc….

  12. Misty

    What time does the show start at Keesler Air Force Base on Saturday May 4th?

  13. SGT. Douglas McDaniel

    Do you not do any US Heartland states? (southern Missouri and Illinois, or northern Arkansas, or western Tennessee or Kentucky. The Navy Blue Angels come to the Cape Girardeau, Missouri Air Festival all the time (just this past weekend). I watched the Thunderbirds perform when I was 14 years of age. Now at 49, I was telling my 13 year old son about the Thunderbirds, while watching the Blue Angels. I want my son to see the Thunderbirds perform sometime, but Ohio is a long drive. Please consider demonstrating in the earlier listed states.

    Cape Girardeau Air Festival- 860 Rush H. Limbaugh Jr. Memorial Dr. Cape Girardeau, MO 63703- 573-334-6230
