Airshow/Flyby Schedule - March 2008 Filed 2/29/2008

Well this month starts the airshow flying season in earnest. March kicks off the major military performers season and their appearances are marked below in color (blue=Blue Angels; red=Thunderbirds, Golden Knights=Brown).

As always if you travel to a show and monitor any comms, I would sincerely appreciate a field report from you to update our files. This is the only way we are able to keep our annual airshow guide up-to-date. Even if the freqs are in our guide we still need reports that confirm what we have listed. Your reports keeps those freqs on the list and not removed for inactivity.

Radio hobbyists who want to monitor these events should download the latest copy of the Monitoring Times Airshow Guide from the magazine website. The 2007 guide is available at

The new 2008 airshow guide is now available in the March issue of Monitoring Times magazine, on the newstands right now. The free web version of this March guide won't be posted to the MT website until late April or early May. This is done as a courtesy to our subscribers and readers who pay the freight. So get your copy of the March issue before it sells out. Better yet, get a subscription and don't miss a single exciting issue of Monitoring Times magazine.
