A lot of it is the same stuff as previous years, but that XP-82 has me heading out there one of the days. Both days though are calling for a chance of rain as of now.

If anybody takes pictures or video for this show let me know. I would like to experiment with Airshow reports for warbirds.tv!
Thanks.

Rumor on the VAC facebook page by posters that the XP-82 had a mechanical problem and isn't coming. It's not on the schedule anymore, anyone know anything? That is kind of my make or break decision for driving from Orlando. Otherwise it's a lot of the same past acts and not so good weather to boot. I would go in no matter what weather conditions to see the XP-82, but otherwise unless it is sunny probably won't go unless there is some other aircraft I am not aware about

True statement. I heard engine issues.

42nd annual Space Coast Warbird Airshow (TICO) photos from a mostly overcast Friday and Saturday.
Friday nights show paused for everyone to watch and hear a Delta 4 rocket launch a military satellite at the Cape.
Evening news showed Jet Truck caught fire and burst into flames stopping show for a while Sunday, no injuries.

Great photos! Looked like a fun start to the warbird season.

How was the Legacy Flight? Looked like the Goshawk made a few passes alone, hoping to see the Hornets allowed to stretch their wings at least a little bit at the Legacy shows.

As mentioned above the jet truck caught fire today and burst into flames.
Yesterday the jet truck beat the Warbird Adventure's TP-40 Warhawk in a race.

This from Warbird Adventure's facebook page, make sure the sound is turned on in the bottom of the video.
