    Those are some amazing pics that have been posted! It must have been quite an airshow, especially out on the beach with the nice weather. Too bad it wasn't next weekend, since I'll be home then and could have checked them out. :(

    The Thunderbirds arrived in Colorado Springs either this morning or last night sometime, and did an unofficial practice for a little earlier today. Their official practice is tomorrow, and then the airshow is Wednesday during graduation. Although the lineup may be nothing like Jones Beach, we should still have some decent flyovers the next two days (we had a 4-ship of T-38s today, which was ok), but I'm really looking forward to the graduation flyover! Not too many schools, well just one actually, have the Thunderbirds fly over right at graduation when the hats go up and then do an airshow right after. I'm looking forward to it... hope the weather is nice!

    ok, seriously now. was there nothing with rotors flying this weekend or was everyone just interested in fastmovers?!
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I was going to wait until I'd gone through all of my photos before I posted any, but here's one for you:

    Nice pics by all, but so far I would have to say Moose has the shot of the weekend with that F-86 breaking off Runway 1.

    Here's a few from my next block of shot around Republic.

    The only statics for this show were provided by LI Helicopter.

    Nice shots everyone.


    Did he roll the B-1 bomber?


    I just saw the Tbirds come in to land on Saturaday after the show. It qas nice that all I had to do was step out the front door of the office as they flew over and all turned starboard in front of my door, to line up for landing one by one at FRG.

    Which leads me to ask: Did they land with the arrestor hook? Looks like they landed on the runway opposite of the end that is near Home Depot. And they landed one by one, right after one another. So I am assuming they didn't. Otherwise, how would they be "caught and released" by the cable in time for the very next landing?

    Any clarification?
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Mario,

    They didn't roll the B-1, but they did get it up close to a 90 degree bank. The Thunderbirds did land Rwy 32, opposite of their departure, not sure exactly why. And no, they didn't hook them when they landed. The cable was only there in event of an emergency - no brakes or some other problem that would cause them to go off the runway.
