    2015 Rhode Island Airshow

    May 30-31, 2015
    Quonset Point RI
    Rhode Island National Guard Open House

    This is looking to be perhaps the best show lineup I've seen to date, performers confirmed are as follows:

    US Navy Blue Angels
    USAF Viper Demo Team (And Heritage Flight)
    CAF Snowbirds
    CF-18 Demo
    Breitling Jet Team
    John Klatt
    Sean Tucker
    Rob Holland
    Geico Skytypers
    Shockwave Jet Truck

    Is anyone else thinking of heading this way for the show? I'm already marking my calendar to be there at least Saturday/Sunday and hopefully I can get out of work Friday for practice day.

    Mark

    EDIT: I forgot to put the date in the title, any chance that could be changed?

    I'll be there for sure! You can add Gregory Colyer's T-33 "Ace Maker" to the list as well.

    Even better, glad to hear the T-33 is going to be making it's way out. I haven't shot one in quite a few years, possibly even back in the film days.

    Is anyone else coming out this weekend? (Besides Steven of course)

    Saturday is looking like a dream weather-wise, and Friday is looking perfect too. I've got my fingers crossed for Sunday's rain to hold off or at least be intermittent enough to get some flying in, but it's not looking too good.

    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Here's a cool video from inside the cockpits of the Snowbirds flying up the Hudson last week

    Rich...that oncoming camo CF-18 shot....is destined for life as a mural-sized enlargement. Simply brilliant shot
