    There are great views along Lakeland and Smithtown Aves of Runway 6/22 but who knows what plans SCPD and Airport Police have for keeping people away.
    Beitling Team was at Annapolis today so my guess is sometime tomorrow morning after 9 or 10? They are making a personal appearance at Tourneau in Roosevelt Field Thursday night
    starting at 6:30.

    At FRG this afternoon, tower was reporting winds of 15 knots, gusting to 25. Fortunately, it was right down the runway, so these guys could get in.

    Very quiet around Republic last night. Signs by the terminal say "T-Birds at Islip" "Practice Show Friday 12-5PM" "Air Show Sat & Sun 12-5PM" No postings on the Breitling Jet Team arrival.

    Some shots from around the museum

    BTW anyone know when Team Breitling coming in?
    Can Anyone confirm they're going up today? I'd like to get my nephew to see some jets for first time without dealing with the crowds of the weekend. Anything going on at FRG? If not, there's always the practice tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm hearing the Thunderbirds are due in to ISP around 5, so I wouldn't expect them to fly again after that today. No word yet on the Breitling team.

    In all likely hood the Thunderbirds will go up today to go over the showbox and get their landmarks.

    While not a practice you will get to see them at a slower speed.
