    And i wonder if the Tbirds will give FRG a FlyBy when heading back to Islip? Guess that depends on how much fuel they have left!! Would be nice!!
    Also on the American Airpower Museum Facebook Page they wrote that they will do their best to send out arrival times of the warbirds coming in next week on both their FB page and website!!

    I've been told the terminal and ramp will be closed, and there may be paving work going on at the terminal parking lot - I wonder if those plans effect the Thunderbirds' decision to use ISP?

    The Jet team will be at the terminal, This will give more room for the AAM to move bombers around but I do not know anyone that is happy about that. The Bombers will be flying in to the AAM Monday around noon. Happy Hunting

    As of this afternoon the ramp/terminal still operational!!
    Having the Breitling Team at the Terminal will be great for us!! ETA on them?
    And Fred did say Bombers at Noon (mmm cool movie title) and the AAM said they will try to give heads up on arrivals on their Facebook page and website but the FB page would be closer to real time I'm thinking.

    The Jack Link's Jet Waco trailer has arrived already and it was parked over by the fuel tanks near Sheltair today.
    Won't be long now until all the Air Show Week festivities begin at FRG

    Is that the CF-18 or the VFA-106 Legacy Hornet that won't be at the show now?

    The CF-18 had already dropped out early but thought the Legacy was still in the mix but the Bethpage Air Show website doesnt show them either.

    Oh well, so much for the usual Air Show festivities at FRG this week with NO >>afterburner>> departures now !!
    Jones Beach went from the CF-18 Demo, to the NAVY F/A-18C TAC Demo, to NO HORNET Demo now. WTF?!
    This is very disappointing news, especially with only one week til the show.
