2017 marks the USAF Thunderbirds and US Navy Legacy Hornet Tactical demonstration team East VFA-106 Gladiators base in NAS Oceana. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the F-18 demo was cancel .
Military participation was quite good for an airshow of this size. We got 2x A-10C from 442nd Fighter Wing ( FW) or 442nd Operational Group base at Whiteman AFB, MO attended as static display.
The VFA-106 US Navy Legacy Hornet demo spot an Anniversary jet for the VFA-15 Valions which was deactivated recently. The main jet came in but not the secondary jet since the demo was cancel.
We also got a C-130H from Texas Air National Guard’s 136th Airlift Wing, KNFW NAS Ft worth JRB and a KC-135 tanker from 434th Operations Group Grissom AFB .
