    That weather was just awful. Never made it to Jones Beach, but it was great hanging out with everyone at D&B for a while. Here is to hoping tomorrow is better.

    Unfortunately, the Growlers have been delayed and it sounds like they may have had to land at another airport for now

    Yeah lucked out on these guys.Was over by New Highway when the horse plane came in then heard Snowbird coming in 1-4. Made it there with time to spare and was pleasantly surprised when
    I saw a Flight of 3 in formation coming in. Thought it was only 1!!! About 10 later the last 2 came in!!
    Crappy day and disappointed but there was enough action to keep me occupied. The 2 NYSPD B430s took off around 2:30 and headed out to the beach and came back about 30 minutes later. Took a last stop by the Terminal to check out the Blues again as the crowd had lightened. One of the Blues Crew was standing by the fence signing pics and passing them through the slot in the door then stayed around talking to the people standing there especially the kids, answering all questions patiently. He was giving "life advise" to the kids which I thought was very cool. You know, stay in school, work hard, listen to your parents, eat your veggies!!
    Well Sunday I'll be heading to the beach as tomorrow is Eisenhower Park and the USN/USMC demo.
    Enjoy all and lets hope this fracking weather lifts!!!!!!

    My plan was to hit the beach today as well, I didn't bother since the weather was so lousy and it turned out to be the right choice. We were at Republic for a few hours with not much action other than the E-6 arriving. When the Blues were still expected to take flight, we were told that we had to be on the other side of the taped off area by the tower once they started, which kind of sucks. Did someone get hurt there last year? It was always no restrictions in the past. Anyways, we went by the Blue Angel pilots that were signing autographs and once again almost were too late. The guy said that they would only sign two more and we requested an exemption as we only needed number fives autograph and showed him the poster from Andrews from last week, his expression was priceless. Anyway, he allowed us to get the autograph so my son's poster is now complete.

    Definitely a bust today, the best part of the day was lunch with the guys at Buster's and Dave's.
