According to this facebook post it appears as though they will do a show at Gatineau on August 13th , not for the show .

Does anyone know of any tour companies or organisations planning any trips stateside?
Ive had a quick look at the venues and prices are coming up a bit scary for flights etc.

Thanks I know they have been over before but can't remember them hopping across, amazing how they get to places like Singapore.

Would imagine it'll be Keflavik and Narsassauaq (Greenland) and then Gander/Goose Bay or similar on the Candian North-East coast?

It appears that the air show in Portland is at McMinville (where the Spruce Goose and the museum is) and not Hillsboro

I notice somewhere that the International Trade Secretary Laim Fox and Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt are due to see at least one of the shows in the States, I wonder wether either Fox or Mordaunt will still be in their positions when the tour actually starts or will Boris or Jeremy Hunt have reshuffled in the next couple of weeks>

Possibly Stornoway before Kef? then after Gander/Goose Bagotville before their first display at Ottawa?

26/27/28th August.
On the 27th they flypast the Air & Space museum at Dulles.
Does anybody know where in the Washington DC area they are operating out of and planned flypast routing for a friend who wants to get some pictures.
Thanks
