    Darn, sorry to hear about that, Lee. You still have time to get a ticket and come out for the Camarillo show in August. ;)

    Save up a few quid and come out next year for Chino. That is a show that is sure to never disappoint. Edwards runs every other year now, so next year should see both the F-22 and the F-35. Lots of good stuff coming up. Hopefully, you'll be able to catch another show soon that is local to you.
