Maybe, as a consequence of the US shutdown, the DC-8‘s missions are cancelled for the time being :(

Any news regarding the press day and possible flying for Wednesday? I couldn't find any cancellation for this event. According to the news there's no lockdown anymore...

Hi

No idea about a flight for tomorrow Tuesday 30th yet? Because the word was that they where going to do extra missions this week to get to their required number of flight hours (also due to the canx flights the experienced througout the past weeks, think there where 1 or 2 canx?). Would be nice just to know if it might move tomorrow, with all the nice weather they give for tomorrow ;)

Thx & Greets, Y

Is it still actual? Just asking, because i´d like to Visit RMS tomorrow. And if yes, which Runway (RWY26 or RWY27 - because of Wind from SW) have a higher chance of usage?

Thank you very much in advance again!!! Have a nice evening and weekend!
