    There are media flights and such going on all day.

    I doubt the Brietling Team will go up again.

    Check out the AAM's website & Facebook page for warbird flight operations.

    Was over by the Terminal and they were putting covers on the aircraft and they have an event at 6:30 tonite at Roosevelt Field at the Tourneau shop.
    Also their support aircraft a Fairchild Metro III came in about an hour later and is parked just south of the Terminal near Ventura.

    Doesn't it seem that just about every year the weather on the Thursday before the show, arrival day, is always cloudy and overcast....................

    Some of the Breitling Jet Team arriving.

    Does anyone know if the AAM is hosting their usual late afternoon/early evening ceremony for donors - on Saturday or Sunday? They usually send up some planes and the lighting is just great at that time of day!

    Thanks Ken. Did they do the tactical pitch up and landing? IF so they must have been tight to the airport as I never heard them. Or did they come in one at a time on a long final? I heard tower say that one may be going up later for a media flight. This was right after the C-17 departed. Is the SCPD chasing people away or are they being nice?
