    Unlike many air-shows in our area, provided the weather is cooperative, the sun should be, more or less, at your back.

    Where is "South Beach, NY", and is it a full demo or just a fly over?

    I just saw these guys up in Quebec, let me say their show is on par if not better than the Blues and T-birds.

    Re: Red Arrows to visit Republic Airport

    any idea what time they'd be arriving at FRG? i'm assuming sometime in the late morning/early afternoon due to the transit from OQU. since they'll be based up there i'm guessing that they'll depart the morning of the 26th. i'm wondering if it's more worth it for me to just go to the SI show and shoot that as opposed to the arrival/departure from FRG. i'll be there in the morning but not very long, have to make it to class as well.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Why would they do this on a Wednesday? :(

    Re: Red Arrows to visit Republic Airport

    I've known about the Republic visit and NYC display for quite some time from my friends on the UK messageboards. Anyone who has not seen them display and cannot make it to Langley or Quonset needs to take the trip accross the Verrazano. You will not be disappointed! Since I'm going up to RI the 28-29 I'll hanging around Farmingdale on Wed/THU I can only imagine what their routine would be like if they had Eurofighter Typhoons.

    Good call on the "show center." Anyone have any details on that?

    All things being equal, the "center" of most South Beach events is Sand Lane. If this is really going to be "South Beach" then its got to be pretty much between Sand Lane and Seaview Avenue.

    Yeah, thats what is it "should" be...you'd think. If we don't get anything concrete on this, I would recommend just seeing where the buses taking in the folks from Manhattan via the Homeport pier, are going to park. That might be an indication.

    Re: Red Arrows to visit Republic Airport

    Well, the ICAP viewing area will be a "Private area on South Beach, Staten Island adjacent to the Vanderbilt restaurant." Find said restaurant and stand next to the area with all of the free food that you can't get into, and you should be pretty close to show center.

    What I will probably do is hang out around southern Manhattan for the day, then eventually take the ferry over to Staten Island, ride the rails to Old Town station, then walk about a mile and a half from there to the beach. I've never been to SI, does this itinerary sound reasonable?

    There is the Vanderbuilt OF South Beach featured here...
    http://www.yelp.com/search?find_loc=149 ... sland%2CNY
    This is i149 Waterbury Ave in Huguenot - by Wolf's Pond Park, which IS ultimately along the Staten Island shoreline, but this is NOT the place .....

    We want..
    The Vanderbuilt AT South Beach.. featured here..
    http://www.weddingsitesandservices.com/ ... Beach.html
    300 Father Capodanno Blvd.

    So, don't anyone please get in a cab and say "Take me to the Vanderbuilt..."

    Yes, it will be by the Dolphin Water fountains... The good news.. There shouldn't be any significant advantage to this "show center", to be at the Vanderbuilt.. plenty of room in the parking lots, boardwalk and beach on all sides.

    Grummanfan - That'll work, but I would suggest taking one of the buses from the St George Ferry Terminal....

    http://www.mta.info/nyct/maps/bussi.pdf

    51, 52, 81 ... but give yourself extra time. I am not familiar with them in recent years, but the buses and trains are not as frequent as they are in Brooklyn or Manhattan, etc.

    I can forget SI but I'll probably go over to FRG Wed night to catch them returning. That is if they are returning that night.
    BTw do they have a support plane like the Angels C-130?
