US Navy TACDEMO and Legacy Flight 2020 schedule

The US Navy will support 40 airshows this year with demonstrations and Legacy Flights, but only 11 shows will see full demonstrations, according to an early schedule.

The Super Hornet “TACDEMO” from VFA-106 – rebranded as the Rhino Demo Team – will fly at 11 shows, at which it may also perform Legacy Flights. VFA-125, flying the F-35C Lightning, will fly at ten, performing mini-demonstrations along with Legacy Flights, as will VAQ-129 with the EA-18G Growler.

Meanwhile, VFA-122 will fly Legacy Flights only at nine shows with the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

The Legacy Flight organisation have not given details of which aircraft or unit will perform at individual shows, other than those which will see full Super Hornet tactical demonstrations from VFA-106.
