MCAS Yuma Air Show 2024 - 9th March 2024 - Updated 12-02-24

Post by spellow3010 »

MCAS Yuma (Arizona) is opening its doors to the public again on Saturday March 9th 2024. This sadly clashes with the air show about an hour down the road in El Centro. So, my friend and I will need to make a choice about which show to go to as part of our aviation road trip.

https://www.yumaairshow.com/

Flying List (as of 12th February 2024) -
Military Free Fall School Skydiving Demo
USMC MAGTF Demo (AH-1Z, CH-53E, F-35B, F/A-18C, KC-130J, MV-22B, UH-1Y) with Pyro
USMC F-5N Demo ( :heart_eyes: )
USAF F-22A Demo & P-40N Heritage Flight with Pyro
USMC MV22B Demo, VMX-1
USN F/A-18E Demo (presumably VFA-122 colour jet)
USMC F-35B Demo With Pyro
Civilian Pitts Special S-1D

NOTES - the CH-53K has now been removed from the list of flying participants in the MAGTF. There is one now listed in the static.

The P-38 is not now listed for the Heritage Flight element of the F-22 Raptor display routine. It is now listed as a P-40N Warhawk


Static List (as of 12th February 2024) -
USMC AH-1Z Viper
USMC AV-8B (VX9?)
USMC F-5N Tiger/Aggressor
USMC CH-53E Super Stallion
USMC CH-53K King Stallion
USMC FA-18C/D Hornet
USMC F-35B 'Dave'
USMC MV-22B Osprey
USAF C-17A Globemaster
UC-12F Huron
UH-60M Black Hawk
MQ-9A Reaper

C-27J Spartan (does not state the operator)
C-41A

P-40N Warhawk
P-51D Mustang
SBD-5 Dauntless
B-25J Mitchell
C-47 Dakota
F4U1A Corsair
F-86F Sabre
Mig-15Bis
NEW TBM-3E Avenger

Notes -
The B-17G Flying Fortress no longer appears on the website, so presumably this is cancelled now.
The P-38 that was originally listed as flying as the Heritage Flight componet with the F-22 Raptor is also no longer listed as flying or static.

That flying list is proper-bo, even as it sits today. A very healthy static too.

So frustrating that they share the date with El Centro. Time for the coin toss.

I think MCAS Yuma is a better show with better participants but they don't have the Blue Angels. It is a tough choice.
