    If anyone is at Islip I just had 2 Chinooks, a Huey and what looked like a Cobra fly right over my house.

    My dad has been asking me and Ihve no idea, so here goes.

    What time do the Tbirds usually do their show? Im assuming 4 PM. So here's asking me and Im telling him. And he thinks he'll pick up my kids on Friday aftrernoon at 3:15 and make it to Jones Beach for 4 PM from Huntington. I told him to get real.

    Is 4 PM accurate?
    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.

    Never caught the Thunderbirds at the beach but Blues in the past always went on the last hour. Fridays are not as crowded as Saturday and Sunday.

    With the show schedule being Noon to 5pm this year, I would expect the Thunderbirds to fly around 4pm. Fifi and Diamond Lil (the CAF B-24) are both at the AAM.

    We set up in Red Hook to try and catch FIFI with the Statue Of Liberty in the background but unfortunately, she came down the river from the North, making a few slow lefthand orbits, making for very long and not particularly clear shots. It was good to see her back in the area though.

    I don't even care, as we said earlier, with next weeks lineup this a good warm-up show.

    Anybody going to try to catch the Thunderbirds arrival to Islip?
    For some of us, this IS THE Show. The Hornet Demo is what, 10 minutes? The FAA couldn't open the box hours earlier before the TB's for that amount of time?

    The NOTAM is finally posted: http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_5_4476.html

    It only includes Thursday through Saturday (strange, unless they will post a separate one for Sunday, but that seems unusual...) and airspace restrictions are for Thursday 4 - 5 pm, and Friday and Saturday Noon to 5pm. And under reason for NOTAM, it says The USN Blue Angels and various aerial demonstrations.

    So it looks like maybe the TBirds up Tomorrow around 4 then Practice Show Friday!! But then again since the NOTAM doesnt include Sunday AND it reads Blue Angels, who knows LOLOL!!
    BTW anyone know when Team Breitling coming in?
