17DEC22 | Huge Andrews AFB Airshow!

Credit: jba.af.mil

Event Background

Andrews AFB is one of the main air force bases in the USA, and a gateway to Washington D.C for different governments around the world. Every year in the Andrews AFB Airshow is a blast, and I think we should do the same in IF.

Event Organization MUST READ

  • In order for this event to be organized and systematic, everybody must follow the flight plan below which is a basic circle around the airport. When it is your time to come and for a flyby/demo please enter a right downwind for the runway and then follow the flight plan.

I know some demo including blue angels will do their demo from takeoff and the blue angels can also last about 40 minutes to an hour depending on the maneuver routine they’re performing due to weather so they might perform a flat, low or high show. You should keep that in mind and also a typical airshow last more than an hour.

Changed. The event is now 3hrs long. Let’s get some signups!

Is anybody part of IFATC willing to be ATC for the airshow?

Hey, I would like to do a KC-10 demo as “DECEE71”. (Wish there was a KC-135 in game but oh well haha)

Hello there!

It’s still awhile out to confirm I can actually do this, but I’d like to do a 10-Tanker DC-10 demo (not the tanker as in military, but the fire fighting one)

Well I don’t know if it does or doesn’t yet, it’s a bit far out but I want to get in there

Considering it’s Saturday, and I don’t think me and my family are traveling around that time, so I give it a solid chance
