    FYI - that question was asked on the show's FB page and unfortunately they
    responded that the Thunderbirds would be back at MacArthur again in 2017.
    I'm still hoping that the show gets either the Legacy or Super Hornet Demo also
    and possibly the A-10 participating in a Heritage flight too this year cause they
    would most likely be using FRG along with the rest of the show performers

    BTW, looks like the show is going with a brand new show logo this year >>

    Looks like AAM will have a B-25, P-51, & SBD. I second the need for a change up.

    The MN Wing will offer rides in its B-25 “Miss Mitchell” during the Dixie Wing tour with the P-51 Mustang ‘Red Nose” and the SBD-5 Dauntless. The units also are planning an air-to-air aviation photography workshop at Raleigh.

    Preliminary dates:

    April 22-23 in Peachtree City, GA then Savannah (04/29-30), Greenville, SC (05/7-8), Raleigh, NC (05/13-14), Virginia Beach, VA ( 05/18-21) Farmingdale, NY ( 05/25-28) then Reading, PA for the WWII Weekend. Stay tuned for the more details!

    Thanks Chris, didn't see that they answered that.

    Hoping for the A-10 but the message I saw was that they wanted to use it for smaller shows that can't support the other aircraft. Guess we'll wait and see when the schedule comes out.
    Saw that the Osprey and Harrier demo are elsewhere Memorial Day weekend.

    It looks like they pushed back the time of the airshow, apparently it will run from 12-5pm this year.
