    I was surprised there was no traffic going in, a lot of people were leaving. I got a spot right In field four.

    After the show I was at Sunrise & The Meadowbrook in not even 10 minutes.

    Two questions: what time do the breitling jets launch and return to FRG today? I assume the longer runway, away from the AAM?

    And what time do the TBs launch from Islip? Where's the best spot to watch them return at islip?

    Thanks. May not make it out there but want to keep my options open.

    No, they did not.
    Thanks for the correction Moose. Not sure why I always think West Point. So West Point doesn't get a "fly over"? Even the US Open Tennis gets a Fly Over every once in a while :-)

    They took off one at time on both Sat. and Sun. at FRG., the only difference was that
    on Sat. they used Rwy 32 to takeoff and land, and on Sun. they used Rwy 19 for both.

    So now the obligatory end of air show questions:
    TBirds leaving today or tomorrow and time? Same with Breitling!!

    Hung around Republic today and had a great time!! Watched the Breitling team from the back of Atlantic by 109 depart, and they did a nice Formation FlyBy before leaving and another upon returning!! Very cool!! Nice crowd by the Terminal also!! Actually when I was by Atlantic one of the Geico pilots came out to get in his car and I thanked him for the great shows they always put on and told him I was waiting for the Beitling Team to depart!! He was very enthusiastic in his praise of them!!
    Almost thought the TBirds were going to come in!! Apparently TBird 1 thought he was talking to Islip and the FRG controller thought he was talking to her about a Flyby and for a few minutes those who were listening in got a little excited!! Oh well! They did pass to the north of FRG to Islip!!
