    No, the Thunderbirds didn't flyover FRG and just hugged the coast and headed east out to ISP.

    Just me or did the Thunderbirds show seem short? This was my first T-Bird show. Their maneuvers were very different from the Blues show.

    When the Blue Angels are in for the show, they typically take a trip down to Annapolis to fly over the Naval Academy graduation. The Thunderbirds fly over the Air Force Academy graduation, not West Point - that's a Army thing.
