B2 does the fly over around 11:30 today with it's low holding pattern out near Innsbrook.

B-52 does the fly over tomorrow same time and should be same holding pattern.

B-29, P-51, P-38, P-40, F-16, F-18 all flying today.

I was there today. It was a good show, but cold! No P-38. I loved seeing the A-4 Skyhawk.

I might drive up tomorrow just to see the B-52 fly over.

It was wicked as you saw it off in the distance and then go right over you. Its the spookiest airplane I've ever seen. Cool thing was everything and I mean everything was flying WAY lower than past shows at Spirit. This was because the cloud ceiling was maybe 1000 feet?

The B-29 made a hard turn at the end of the runway to come in over the run way at a "show angle" and man it was like they were flying a fighter the way they through it around. crazy to see a big plane move like that.

F-16 going repeated full afterburner 50 feet off the runway for a touch and go. F-18 full afterburner and high g turns at 500 ft

You could easily see the pilots, it was awesome. It did seem like some aircraft didn't make the show like the P-38 so I think it gave other "acts" more time as the A-4 was fucking hot dogging like mad, low pass rolls, high speed passes / turns, I was pretty impressed by the Skyhawk and totally see how it kicked the AV8's ass in the Battle of the Falklands.

I was there yesterday too and that was really cool!

What wasn't cool was when two Indian/Paki guys tried to steal my camping chairs while I took my kids to look at the jets/helicopters.
