    Default Will Reno have a jet team in 2018?

    I (sorta) know the answer, and the reason there wasn't one this year. Anyone want to take a guess???

    I have no idea who might be coming or why they didn't have one this year, but I would just like to say that I thought TFLM was outstanding and one of the best performers Reno has had. Seeing that collection of airplanes was an amazing opportunity for everyone there.

    Thank you TFLM!!!

    Agreed! I hope they come back to race a couple planes next year!

    Reno had "less" attendants in 2017 because of the lack of a jet team, but they did have an increase in attendants there for racing. More "fans" less "attendants", take it as you will

    Yes but only one day. USAF Thunderbirds for Wednesday, 12Sep18. They then go on to NY Airshow.

    Not wrong only half the story though (or I guess 1/5 of the story)

    Not privy to any other factors that went into a one-day show but regardless, it's better than no jet team at all. Here' hoping Reno is in the mix for a jet team in 2019. We'll know in less than two months...

    Think North! It'll hopefully be confirmed in a month...

    That is a very interesting observation. I really enjoyed the TFLM and would like to see them back.

    One of my favorite things about this year was no jet demo team. TFLM did a bang up job and I truly enjoyed their performances. They have really cool planes that tbey fly the crap out of. Jet demo teams are completely boring to me and it's at least an hour of each air race day devoted to them. I get that it puts butts in seats but personally, I'd rather see that money go to the purse for racing. Either that or keep bringing TFLM.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!
