2019 we have an excellent lineup for Ft Worth Alliance airshow. We have 3 tactical demostration team from the USAF Air Combat command F-16 and F-22 Tactical demostration. Also the United States Air Force Heritage Flight. This is followed by the US Army Golden Knights Parachute team. United States Navy gave quite a big contingent namely the world Famous Blue Angels and for the 1st time, F-35C tactical demostratioin. Besides the Military, Bell helicopter made their 1st debut on the Tilt Rotor V280.
2019 marks a very different year for the Ft worth Alliance Airshow. From the past this airshow have been the top airshow in North America , but we always have the issue of bad lighting because of the direction of where the crowd line is at. We always get very bad light ( from Photography point of view) after 1pm when we are getting all the good flying performance in the airshow. This year for the 1st time and I hope this goes on from now on, All major military display started at 11am and finish by 2pm . Double “hurreh” for the organizer and now we actually can get very good pictures in good lighting of the flying display inside the airshow which in the past we have to leave the show to get good pictures to photograph outside the airfield.
