We clearly have a different reference for what constitutes an air show 'pass'...

The F-35A is slated to make a second appearance in a row at the Abbotsford Air Show in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada:

This time, it will be a flight demo, instead of just a static display.

Just got home from China Lake.

AN-02 - 323TES
BK-04 - 17(R)
CF-32 - VX-9 ...(we can update the database I guess. :)

The pilots can't say enough good stuff about the planes, especially the Dutch.

all on static. Good time seeing all 3 variants at the same show for the first time. Fox field a week from today. 461 DT should have one on static.

Glad things worked out this year at the Palmdale airshow.

AF-01 is on static. Lots of mission markings on it now including two birds. 1000+ hours on the airframe, so it's starting to look pretty worn out.


At 9:30 AM an F-35 (not sure which... but probably AF-07) went supersonic somewhere high above Fox Field and "boomed" the Antelope Valley. Even the locals were surprised at how good this one was.

The Los Angeles County Airshow is not the Palmdale airshow. It was held at Fox Field, which is in Lancaster.

No plans for F-35 to fly at Paris Air Show [GREAT VIDEO of F-35B HOVERING CLOSE UP at URL]
26 Apr 2017 Valerie Insinna

"WASHINGTON — The F-35 will sit out the Paris Air Show this June, the joint program office confirmed Tuesday.

A spokesman for the F-35 Joint Program Office told Defense News that — to his knowledge — the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps had not been invited to bring the F-35 to the Paris Air Show this year, and as such the JPO is not planning on making an appearance....

...Unlike the United Kingdom — which is an international partner, customer and steadfast supporter of the F-35 program — France has remained uninterested in the aircraft, investing instead in its indigenous Dassault Rafale.

Although the U.S. government won’t be showing off the F-35, Lockheed Martin almost certainly will make the aircraft a focal point of its marketing during the Paris Air Show. The company is entrenched in talks with Belgium, Finland, Switzerland and Spain about potential purchases of the aircraft."

I think we're all waiting for the gloves to come off. AKA post stall maneuvering, J-turns etc... The Russians aren't the only one's capable of such breathtaking maneuvers..

I would really love to see a Block 3F airshow, no holds barred. It will probably only happen in 2018 the earliest though :(
