Re: MCAS Miramar Airshow 27-29 September 2024

For those that have been before, is there likely to be more added to the static line up? Also is there any chance of extra participation in the flying program? Even if not a 'proper' full display, but a flypast etc I would say pretty unlikely that there will be any change in the flying given my lim...

Re: SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo :: Wednesday

A great set of images there Sean and especially loving the Ghost Squadron ( hoping to see them in Houston later this year ) and the dusk/night shots. Thankyou for posting.

Re: Luke Days '24 ( Pic Heavy! )

So many great shots from both of you. The static was amazing with so many specials & rarities. :sunglasses: It appears the flying display was a few notches higher than the standard US. format. That "Blacksnakes" A-10 Demo' has to be a get it while you can? Biggest concern for me is th...

Re: MCAS Miramar Airshow 27-29 September 2024

Thanks for your messages!! Sorry for so many questions, only ever done shows in the UK. I will definitely get some of the 1 gallon see through bags. I'm not a photographer so I don't need to worry about cameras etc. Hopefully will just need to bring sun-cream! Was in the same boat until a couple of...

Re: MCAS Miramar Airshow 27-29 September 2024

Certainly hoping to be there again this year hopefully with my learned ( and far more able ) photographic friend ChrisM if we can get work to play ball. Would be good to catch up and share a cold one on the day,

Re: Luke Days '24 ( Pic Heavy! )

Some beauts there Chris - Love the A-10 , T-bird abd F-35 top sides especially with the shockwave forming on the latters fast pass.
How you got the Holloman flare drop I’ll never know!! 😂
Great to see a variety of A10’s at Luke too and that Blacksnake scheme especially is just stunning.

Re: MCAS Yuma '24

Thanks for the info @spellow3010 Sounds like a good show and it’s always strange they put El C and Yuma on the same day given their proximity.
Will have to give it a whirl next time.
And nice shots @ChrisM 👍🏻 See, it was easy catching the flares wasn’t it? 😂😂

Re: MCAS Yuma '24

How was El Centro? There didn’t seem to be much info in the run up and I’ve seen no reviews since either. Did there happen to be one of the few remaining Harriers there as one was pencilled in for Yuma but ended up as a no show?

Re: MCAS Miramar Airshow 27-29 September 2024

Just to add my two penneth after a few recent trips, I can echo the points above but things do seem to vary between marine and air force stations, but the overriding bit of advice is probably the most obvious- don’t forget your passport as for us Jonny Foreigners only that ID will do. Two recent MCA...

Luke Days '24 ( Pic Heavy! )

Part 2 of March's work/aviation extravaganza was a trip to Luke AFB on the Western outskirts of the Phoenix metro area.Having long wanted to attend this show after a six year hiatus it did not disappoint and in contrast to Yuma's short and sweet flying display the weekend show was full of both milit...

MCAS Yuma '24

The first of a couple of shows in March with my old mucca @chrism Thankfully work and play coincided nicely after a bit of planning and Yuma was first on the list. First thing to note... if you are driving East from say SoCal watch out for the cheeky timezone change as you pass over the nearby state...

Re: MCAS Miramar Airshow 27-29 September 2024

Have to agree with @boff180 ‘s comments above the MAGTF demo is corking and very well choreographed. I would post my own pictures but Boff’s cracking photos and video’s such as https://youtu.be/ACnQiPRsvxQ?si=qC7wFhpDukr6LzVW would do it far more justice than mine. The sheer scale is mind blowing an...

Re: Central Coast Airfest ‘23 Oct 14-15th

A couple of nice additions to the flying with Bernie Vasquez’ razorback P-47 and the Lewis C-121.

Also, with the govt shutdown temporarily averted looks like the mil demo’s are still good to go too.

That is a programme that we’ll look back in in future years and think ‘wish we still had display programmes like this now’.
Well done to Pete R and the team for the spadework to make this happen.
