The GEICO Skytypers are unique for excellent formation flying with a control ship turning all aircraft smoke on and off to create marvelous aerial skywriting—á lá impact printing rather than script writing. Much more sophisticated and all done while in tight formations! Additionally, it is a treat to hear several 75 year old North American SNJ aircraft flying together—the sound is incredible to experience—and the letters can be seen by people as far as 15 miles away.

Their 15 airshow schedule is announced and here it is:

    Will always remember my years of flying with you Guys. Miss them and you. Great schedule but the dates look as though you are all retired from ground-bound occupations. Mort would be proud.
