This years theme aircraft is the B-29. They're hoping to get FIFI, Doc(if he is flying by them)as well as Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation C-97 together at one show.

I have heard this show is like very expensive. What kind of costs does it entail? Is there any additional flightline costs to go up to the aircraft for pics and what does the parking usually cost? Thinking I might need to go up to see this thing.

Price and parking is listed on the website. The earlier you buy the tickets the cheaper they get. It's pricey for an air show I guess but not overly too much. No special costs to get up close to the aircraft. Some that fly you may not be able to get near.

It's been a few years since I've gone but here's usually always a big crowd so go early.

I'm definitely stoke about this show! I was a bit disappointed to find out that the CAF B-24A "Diamond Lil" won't make it. Apparently she's going to be down for some extended maintenance when she finishes her current east coast tour.

Nothing on the Collings Foundation's website, so I assume they won't be there (but they're making a stop in Kalamazoo this summer, so it's all good!)
