    FYI - That was David Windmiller practicing for the show next week

    Doesn't look like he will be here today. As you mentioned there is a show at the USNA so he will probably be arriving later.

    Edit: And yes that was Windmiller, he buzzed my house this morning!

    Thanks Gerard!!

    Based off of the TFR issued and the USCG, there should be a practice show.

    Nice thanks. They were putting in the arresting cables this afternoon on 14/32. Finished around 4:15. SkyTypers came in (from Rhode Island?). They flew overhead north to south out to the shoreline to drop from 5000 feet then back to overfly Runway 1 as a Flight of 6 then left break to land!! A mini taste of things to come!!

    Even in years past BA # 7 has flown in on Sunday night and then back out for the USN Graduation.

    But it this year graduation is a Wednesday.

    Also BA # 5 suffered an electrical issue at RI today and couldn't fly the demo. They shut her down and used the 7 plane.

    The 5 plane was up after the show for tests.

    How ow this all affects arrivals???? I don't know.

    That stinks about BA #5, I hope everything works out.

    This year they are actually doing a show at the USNA which I believe they haven't done before.

    My guess is Thursday.

    It's just a guess though as there is not official word yet.

    I just found this through the link on the schedule on the Blue's website- the graduation is still on Friday this year but they are doing a show Wednesday, they will be arriving there Tuesday.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about blue angels number 5. Although the team usually only brings 7 F/A-18s to shows, the Squadron in total has 11 jets. 9 F/A-18C single-seaters and 2 F/A-18D two-seaters. Each D model usually has the number 7 on the back. However sometimes the two-seaters will fly with the squadron.

    Look at at 4 and 6:
