    Here was part of their Facebook post. I was a pass on this show as I am also going to Dayton at the end of the month. BUT, now with both Fifi AND Doc being there, I am planning to attend this year. I think I may reserve a room for Saturday with the plan of attending on Saturday. Sunday would be a back up plan if the weather on Saturday is no bueno. Anyone else interesting in going?

    Two B-29’s, two B-17’s, four B-25’s, a C45, a C46, three C47’s, a C54, a C97, a P63, P-51 and P40. Also an F4U, SBD-5, SB2C-5, FM-2 and TBM-3; numerous T-6/SNJ’s, Buker Jungmeister, Jap Kate and Val replicas plus many L-Birds, and PT’s and a partridge in a pear tree!

    Acrobatics demonstrations include the P-51, P-40, F4U, Greg Shelton and his incredible FM-2 Wildcat, Kevin Russo and his SNJ and Jerry Wells in the Jungmeister.

    The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team is also back by popular demand.

    Airplane rides will be available in no less than 10 WWII bombers, transports, fighters and trainers.

    Doors open at 8:30 usually. I have gotten there as early as 7:00 am to get in line so I can set up right on the fence.

    Yes, it’s about 3 feet high, orange temporary fencing. You can actually shoot from a chair for some of the passes the planes make.

    They have been $25 at the door, but there are ways to purchase early to save a few dollars.

    Just my luck, @ExploringWDW invited me to go to WDW that weekend. What say you, Dave?

    Hmmm. Tough call. Would definitely be a cheaper weekend! Feel free to do whatever you like. We still have options for canceling/modifying our WDW plans.

    If it was me, I'd go to WDW @ddindy and @ExploringWDW ! But since I don't have the time to take off from school, this weekend thing works for me!

    That’s exactly what we decided to do @jbwolffiv!
