    I finally got to see the Breitling Jet Team fly today, and totally wasn't expecting them to pop flares to end their performance. Did they do that yesterday too? Not the greatest shots, have to work on them but here is what they did,

    I happened to be at Eisenhower Park for the Navy/Marine Landings on Saturday and after the Marine departure at around 2pm I was looking south towards the direction of JB and saw some smoke trails and what I thought were flares. I wonder if it was from the Breitling Jet Team. What time did they fly on Sunday?

    I heard they did on Saturday. They didn't during Friday's practice, but did at the show in Manassas.

    It was pretty cool. Wish I knew it was coming.

    Went to KISP today around 3PM and 'American Gold Rush' on the corner of RWY 6 was packed with people. Got to see the T-birds takeoff from RWY 24 at that spot, and it was very cool. Saw SCPD hassling drivers trying to park at the end of RWY 6, but didn't really bother us in the Gold Rush parking lot not too far from there. Any info on the T-birds departure would be greatly appreciated!!

    Actually when they last performed here in 2009 they didnt leave until Monday!! I was there at FRG when the C-17 came in on Runway 1-9 and left on Runway 1. Quite a sight!!

    I stand corrected.

    The C-17 just landed, and is loading up now. All the Jet canopies are open and they're doing a runway sweep now for FOD.

    I would guess within the hour they will be airborne.

    Breitling is parked at the far end of the ramp, not that close to the open part of the ramp. They are leaving Tuesday - at least the ones who can fly.
