    Dress warmly!! It was cool there today even when the sun was out because of the wind but once the sun left it got really chilly!

In fact, if you asked me, the afterburners looked much brighter in that weather and the solo guys sounded a little louder (YAY) than usual!!
    On the sneak passes the dark skies made the burner cones visible. Although I missed shooting them they were there. TBirds made some good noise with those F110s.

    Are there any good spots at Islip? The only shots I have of the TB's from 2011 are unrecoverable from the CD I saved them to :(

    Its a shame they decided not to stay at FRG this time around.

    Yeah, it sure was crazy weather down there today especially with those unexpected clouds rolling in !! Ugh !!
    Fred, I'm not sure why exactly the start was delayed but I believe it had something to do with JFK traffic.
    Anyway, like Gerard said, dress WARMLY because it's supposed to be even cooler down there tomorrow!!

    Can anyone recommend if one day is better for the beach vs FRG/Islip?

    Based on past history Saturday at the beach is less crowded. If I was able to get to the beach I would be going down today.

    Im guessing I just saw the Breitling team on the horizon, as I was westbound on Sunrise Highway in Bayshore at about
    9:02 AM. Looks like then made a smoky pass. practice run I suppose.

    Im in my office now. Seeing patients but love that I can just watch them making passes at FRG right from the office.

    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Golden Knights arrived Friday but did not jump. They departed for the beach around 11:45, I assume they are jumping but I don't know what the conditions are there now.

    I believe, as do the Blue Angels, the TB's flew up to West Point for their graduation.

    Did the TBirds do a FlyOver of FRG before heading back to ISP? I watched them long distance with the help of my trusty binoculars from Wantagh Park wheere we actually got a few fast passes and even some puffs of smoke LOL!!
