Will it really happen this year, or will there be another round of cancellations?

It'll go, barring another sequestration.  I need to try to get in for the practice run....if they still do that on Friday.

As of now the air show is still on for March. There hasn't been rumbles about any money cuts that could nix it, planning goes on. As for Friday practice, I don't think the base will be open to the public. You'll need an ID or someone with one to get on base. The best case is to get close to the fence on the outside, there are some pretty good spots.

I'll be going my my spawn (read sons & grandsons). I anticipate it will be a terrific show and I am looking forward to it very much.

I have the ID to get on the base, but the on tarmac is a different issue.  Years ago, when I was involved with the Westside Chiefs, we were extended an invite from the (major, I think) in charge of the Air Police to come and view the Friday exercises.  Now, I am trying to work with one of the instructors (through my son) to see if it's possible.  If not, there is always my backyard (right under base leg for runway 21).  I was able to get some reasonable shots of the arrivals last time.

Wings of Blue has been added to the list of performers.

T-34, Julie Clark Air Shows

Not much listed for static yet.

I'm wondering why Mike Goulian would be there just for static display.

Chris, it is true that your list is pretty complete, however more than half of these are waiting for either local or AF funding. Hopefully the majority will be funded, when it gets closer to show time we will receive a firm list and I'll be glad to share with everyone. A few days prior to the show we'll get a landing schedule and I'll share that also.

I wondered about that since I've heard that there won't be any military static aircraft at any of the shows this year, except those from the host bases. It was a surprise to see them listed. I guess whoever updates the website decided to be optimistic.

Anything you can provide in the run-up to the show will be much appreciated.

I've been chasing AC-130 arrivals at airshows since 2008, they never show.  Now that it looks like I'm going to be in California during the Luke arrivals, the AC will probably show.  You're all welcome.   Grin

It looks like camera bags will not be allowed this time unless you have media credentials. Under permitted items is included:

- Cameras, video recorders and binoculars. Visitors will be required to show the items work. Items must be small enough to carry by hand.

* Note: Those working for media outlets (TV & Radio stations, newspapers, magazines, websites) should contact Public Affairs for media credentials which will allow for more equipment to be brought onto Luke AFB.

Under prohibited items:

- Back packs, ruck sacks

Camera bags are not specifically mentioned, but the item about items being hand-carryable seems to indicate they aren't allowed.
