TFR in Place for USAF Thunderbirds Arrival April 4

Lakeland Florida Air Show

Attention: Pilots planning on flying in on Monday, April 4th 

The US Air Force Thunderbirds are scheduled to arrive in Lakeland, FL on Monday, April 4th between 1 and 2 PM. The SUN n’ FUN Aerospace Expo is not only expecting more arrivals than normal during this time, but pilots should be aware that there will be a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in place for arrival maneuvers. The US Air Force Thunderbirds will use this time to get familiar with the beautiful Lakeland area in preparation for their performances later in the week. This will NOT be an aerobatic performance, but a non-aerobatic familiarization of the area.
