Default FedEx absent from Memphis air show

Went to the air show in Millington today. Great weather and great job by all performers, especially the Blues. Couldn't help but notice that FedEx had nothing out there like in years past. No Airbus, no caravan, no tent, no truck. Nothing. Anybody know why? Seems like a missed marketing opportunity as there were lots of folks out today.

Fedex is no longer a sponsor of the Memphis Airshow. Not sure if the make contributions to the event but am positive they are no longer a sponsor.

That is because the SCP and his minions were out in HK on the Pink Walk.

Nothing new, serious questions avoided regarding the new 767 base. After all, to use his words, he isn't labor relations or contract admin...wasted time except for a good Fedex paid for meal.

FedEx has bulked at being the primary sponsor of airshows for the last 10 years or so. Nothing new!
