    I was actually thinking the same thing!! BTW NJ had to go undergo a complete physical three months ago and was certified by the BA Flight Surgeon this week.

    Thanks for the info, this should definitely be cool to watch!

    Anybody know where the media flight is taking place? I'd assume Jones Beach, but I may not be correct.
    Most media flights take place over Jones Beach or Captree Island, not sure exactly where the Blues go

    BA #7 won't be going to the Flyover in Maryland. It's just a flyover and no narration is required. He will be doing media flights during the day.

    Here is a link to News 12's Elizabeth Hashagen's media flight two years ago, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Np2vxJDvVl4

    The fly over for the Blue Angels at the graduation is scheduled for 10:04AM Friday in Maryland, so look for them to depart around 9:00AM

    They should return before 11:00AM, refuel and go up for practice Friday afternoon.

    Also if they follow their usual show routine they will fly a practice demo sometime Thursday after they arrive

    Great shots everyone, especially considering the poor lighting conditions this afternoon.

    Even though this isn't airshow related, this little fellow made a surprise visit.

    That Media flight video was actually taken 8 years ago, because sadly a year later in April 2007 the Blue Angel pilot in this video,
    Lt. Kevin Davis call sign "Kojak" was killed during a Blue Angels performance down in Beaufort, South Carolina

    Anyway, after #7 does a MAX climb takeoff at FRG for the Media Flight they usually head down towards the Beach
    and then way out over the Ocean where they're able break the sound barrier during their 45 minute flight also.

    Tried to get to the field for the arrivals but got there too late. Here are a few shots I was able to manage.
