    Since they closed Hanscom AFB and they haven't had a show on the Cape for a long while there's been a drought. I didn't even know there was a show coming to NH.

    I'm a half hour away so this is a very good thing.

    The line up looks stellar.

    Thanks to you I'll be going now.

    Hmm. I'm going to be in Toronto taking a Harvard IV and a Stearman for a spin that first weekend. The 2nd one may be doable, tho....

    Cloyd... Thank's for the info! Yes it's has been a while since there has been this number of shows in the area. But it looks like the Air Force is putting on Quite the 60th birthday program.

    Corsair_Fanatic... either Bird would be a Great way to flying and see the shows. Been up in a Stearman back in the 70's owned by an exinstructor and pilot who was the Army Air Corp's during WWII and at the time ran Southbridge and later on Oxford Airports here in Mass.

    zardozid... where are you generally located? I,m just north of Worcester Mass.

    I'll be heading up to the Pease AB for the Sunday show on the 19... lucked out with a Saturday night off from at work.
