Oh thank jesus.

Any news on USAF TB?
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Military DoD support to public events will return in 2014 at a reduced level. The U.S. Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds will be flying full standard schedules.

Parachute teams to also be reinstated. A tad unsure about military flyover/static support at this time, however last night four F/A-18's did a night afterburner flyby over the World Series...the first DoD flyover since sequestration.

What about single ship demonstrations? Haven't heard anything about it.

The Air Force states that it will not provide flyover support and will not provide static display support. We already know that either the Navy or Marines did the Hornet flyby over the weekend, however that is a different branch.

Some are seeking to re-instate single-ship demos. Read here for more info: http://www.airforcetimes.com/article/20 ... /310240013
