    Ahh, I was sitting on the boardwalk just to the right of the Ben & Jerry's stand.

    Love that copter. But where was he that you had such a close-up? Did they have an LZ set up on SI?
    Hi Gerard -

    The parking lots were filling up at the Vanderbuilt/dolphin fountains, so I had decided to drive just a bit further down South Beach to a fishing pier that extends out aways into the water. No "crowds" to speak of. Just the way an airshow ought to be... :D

    6:58. Right on Schedule. From my vantage point at the park, they went up the hudson and turned around over Jersey up by Weehawken.

    They made up to Hoboken, at least; my girlfriend called after they flew by to ask me if that would have been them. Said they scared the cats.

    footage from past years when my kids were young and you can hear them talking or crying or whining in the background!! Pretty funny now.
    And didnt you get tired holding the camera for over 20 minutes? My arm ached thinking about it.
    Again, thanks.

    Ah nice to be young. :lol:
    The only problem I always had with video taping was that it seems like you really arent watching the action LIVE through the view finder/screen.

    They had a ceremony in London yesterday marking the handover of the Olympics from Beijing to London 2012 and the Red Arrows flew a nice colorful smokey fly-by!!!
