It's that time again. Airshow season is right around the corner. Just curious to know what shows the airliners.net photographer will attend this year.

I'll be attending several,it seems like a lot more than it really is... Most of these are in my backyard.

Apr 29 March ARB Airshow, Riverside CA (Thunderbirds)
July 1,2 National Cherry Festival Airshow, Traverse City Mi (Blue Angels)

These are also very close to me, I might attend a couple of these if I have nothing else going on...
May 20 Chino Airshow (Tentative, light sucks)
June 11 Van Nuys Air Fest (Tentative)
Jun 17 Vertical Challenge Heli AS, San Carlos CA (Tentative)
Jun 24 Ramona Air Fair (Tentative)

Depending on my school dates, these are also possible...

Sep 23, Lincoln NE Airshow (Blue Angels)
Oct 14, MCAS Miramar Airshow (Blue Angels)

@Maiznblu_757:

do you know if by any chance there is going to be an F-14 Tomcat display anywhere in the U.S. or elsewhere this year!!
I've never seen one and I couldn't make it to Oceana last year!  Sad

Just Sun n Fun in the US this year, April 4th-10th. I'll be there on the 6th.

Maybe Fairford in UK, and Jurby in the IOM if it happens.

No demo. The F-14's should participate in the fleet fly-by during the 06 Oceana show. The Tomcat Sunset event will take place a couple weeks after the show, will probably be golf tournament, retirement ceremony, stuff like that.

Hi there! First Post here!

Upcoming airshows for me: (in France of course)

June:
3/4th Ferte Alais (it would be the first time, I hope I can get full access)
11th Orleans Air Force Base
18th Colmar Air Force Base (extended access should be obtained, hopefully)

For those wondering, I'm off work in June this year... I'm not always this available for airshow every month unfortunately.

July:
2nd Cambrai Air Force Base (ok, I like Air Force Bases' Airshows)
8th Vichy Air Show (invited by the organisers but I don't know if I'll make it)

August:
nothing really planned right now and plenty of work that month

September:
10th Roanne Air Show - An absolute no-miss! I'm the official photographer!
I'm suppose to design the poster on the show too. cooooool

Maybe also the 10th Hazebrouck Ballon show in May as photographer (flight in ballon mandatory).

Geez couldn't I just be a full time photographer in summer time???!!!
Any other French Airliners around?

2004 was an interesting year in Wisconsin for major air show acts. There was Blue Angels AND Thunderbirds, in fact twice Blue Angels performances in the State of Wisconsin! And the T-Birds also in chicago, only an hour over the state line!

Not so in 2006.

For me, I am guessing that the July 4th weekend would be a good one. Traverse City followed by Battle Creek - I can drive between both plus get some time in at the Grand Rapids and Traverse City airports. Hey Chad, maybe I'll see you there!

Bruce,
That would be cool. We can discuss closer to that time. I'll be around the Traverse City Airport and downtown quite a bit. Just a note, the Snowbirds will only be performing at BTL on the 4th only.

Only going to the KLu (Royal Dutch AF) open days at Leeuwarden, blue angels being the main reason. Furthermore I've wanted to shoot at an airshow for some time now, and this is a cheap option. Another option is the Koksijde (Belgium) airshow, but I don't know if they do it this year (does someone know?)

If I remain in London over the summer (I may have the opportunity to do a summer research project at KCL Guy's Hospital campus), I would love to attend Farnborough 2006!

Do you think the A380 will be there? I hope so--it would be my first sighting of it!
