    I know it's still two and a half months away but with the Blues doing the show in RI the weekend before and a show at the Naval Academy on Wednesday before Jones Beach is it likely they would just come in Wednesday afternoon or Thursday?

    BA # 7 will probably fly down from RI Sunday evening.

    Usually the team ill fly in on the Thursday morning before the show.

    They will then have a briefing and fly an afternoon practice.

    So they will fly out of FRG Friday AM, down to Annapolis for the Flyover than back up here, land, refuel then out again around 1:454 for the practice show?
    Haha my perfect scenario for that day!!

    How can we get a B-2 to make an appearance here? I know it wasn't actually manufactured here, but it was designed by Grumman pre-Northrop, so I'm sure it was engineered here!

    is there a part of the B-2's history that I am not familiar with?

    The B-2 was designed - and flown - by Northrop before the merger with Grumman. The plane was first displayed publicly in November 1988, and had its first flight in July 1989. Northrop and Grumman merged in 1994.

    Yup. 100% correct. Very little pre-merger Grumman is still active. Actually, within the next year or so, only a handful of Grumman employees will remain on the island.
