May 8-9 2021 9a-4pm. Lots of performers scheduled, it's airborne only due to Covid. No static displays and you have to stay with your vehicle.


Anybody else going to attend? Thunderbirds will be there also. I can search their freqs but does anyone have any known frequencies that will be in use for this years air show?

Looks like all shows are going the drive in route, better than nothing I guess.
Local show here [Ypsi] is charging $150 per car for half a day, show is broken up in 2 per day - I'll pass on that and view somewhere on the perimeter [often do anyhow], guess attendees of military base shows won't get raped like that.

Since there have been very few shows not much reporting of freqs, best thing to do is look up shows from 2019 or before, odds are most if not all freqs will be the same. 2017 Thunderbird Freq

Personally I don't mind the drive in route. More performers than usual and everyone has to stay away from me. $150 bucks that is ridiculus! This one is free.

There is alot of corrections in that thread. I'll just program a bunch and search.

If any of our Bossier / Caddo folks could search the air band when they practice; that would be appreciative.

Nationwide frequencies for the save! Boss kept the tower frequency, Tbirds kept their plotted freqs. It made for a nice show.

Was anyone else there Saturday? BTW I never know if air show threads go in the location, military, or aviation boards :censored:
