Really enjoyed the Santa Maria show in 2022. Not there this year, but that is a nice tidy line up indeed. Fingers crossed all goes well.
Now officially qualifies as a 'regular' at Famous Dave's - El Centro

This was my favourite show last year, I can’t get there this time but hope all goes well and military participation doesn’t get scuppered by the potential US govt shutdown

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.
