    Dude, I know they always land that way. :borat: Matt, I'd have to imagine a hard landing would be Code 3. On the F-16, the " oops " that the pilots would sometimes make would be to scrape the rear ventral fins. USAF guys like to roll as long as possible on the rear 2 wheels to use the fuselage to slow the aircraft down.

    Thanks, it was Souther State Parkway from the New Hwy bridge.
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    The worst thing about this show is going to be getting there, parking and the crowd on the beach. Looks like practice days may be the key.

    #8 came and went this week at JFK
    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.

    Oh well, I guess that means they'll definitely be staging out JFK for the show :(
    It's just too bad they won't be using FRG again like they did last year for Jones Beach.

    Re: Thunderbirds at Coney island.

    Having this show as part of AF Week, that might change things with regards to getting an ACC demo, since most shows with the Thunderbirds are not getting A-10, F-15E, F-16, or F-22 demos...
