Its hard to say, They have had B-52, B-1 and B-2 flybys in the past, and the Navy demo schedule hasn't been released yet.

 

 They usually have a good selection of Modern equipment on static. CH-53, Luftwaffe Transports, Super Hornets all seem to be regulars. time will tell.

Lol. We just need you to ride a bike down the show line once. I will provide you with a flight helmet and free ticket.

They need a Phantom...

 

That would be amazing but I know they have had issues in the past few years keeping it airworthy. Bunch of mechanical problems. But it would make for an awesome show.

Now I'm hearing that Doc the B-29 may not be coming to Thunder after all.  It's not listed on the tour schedule on Doc's website.
