    The Golden Knights departed about 1130. I did not have a chance to drive past the museum this morning, so I am not sure what is left.
    Word was the EA-6B was to leave today, it might have but I did not catch it. The EA-18G's were supposed to depart Tuesday, but Uncle Sam has his own schedule so who knows for sure.

    FYI- When I took the tour of the Growler's cockpit today at the AAM, the crew from VAQ-129 said that their 2 Growlers and Prowler should be departing around 9AM on Tues.

    The B-17 Yankee Lady, the two E/A-18 Growlers, the E/A-6B Prowler and the A-10 Warthog (Commander's ride) were all wheels up by 10:00AM. The two A-10's from the demo team were still on the ramp with their engines covered at 10:30AM when I left the museum.

    B-17


    Growler


    I love the paint scheme on this guy


    A couple of the E/A-6B





    The A-10 Warthog, the Commander's ride



    And this USCG Dolphin stopped by for a few minutes

    I never got to FRG to see the Navy aircraft close up. Can anyone forward to me detailed shots of the Prowler and F-18's for my own collection? I won't post anywhere, only for my personal use and collection. Please PM me.

    It will take me some time to go thru all my photos... Here is one of the few I took

    Fred, AWESOME job on all your night shots !! The special lighting you used behind the wheels of the A-10 and Growler and also on the tail of the EA-18G really make them AMAZING shots !!!
