    I was up with my student at FRG today. We took off just after noon and heard the Mustang, F-35 and F-16 making a low approach down 19. On the break the Mustang landed, the F-16 went to ISP and the F-35 requested a freq to go to ACY through JFK Class B in order to stay clear of the TFR. On the way back in just after 1pm we shared the FRG traffic pattern with the Snowbirds! We landed 19 and cleared at the intersection while they flew right overhead. So cool.

    That LOW approach the F-35A did and the high speed pass by the F-16 on RWY 19 was very cool to see at FRG today!!

    I just found this crappy smartphone video of it on Youtube to give you an idea what it looked like.
    Hopefully someone else got a much better video it today.

    It was a beautiful day at the beach though I know some of you photog guys will complain about lightning and stuff Pretty crowded, the most Ive seen at a practice show but also it was such a lovely day a lot of it was people just out to the beach and no clue they'd run into an air show!! And just so great to hang at show central either on the beach or boardwalk and be able to easily get around!! Snowbirds came in from over the Water Tower and then disappeared out over the water for about 10 minutes but when they came in they did a nice show!! Maybe just getting their bearings since they havent flown here in a few years!! But what happened to the Breitling Team? I guess they didn't want to practice? As usual the Angels did a magnificent show!! With the clear sky they looked like they were flying right into the sun!! And of course one of the solo guys, as usual, did a low and fast run over the crowd literally having everyone jumping out of their skins, and loving it!! And one thing I saw while the Angels were performing and were back over on the Bay side and I was watching with my binocs I thought I saw a small fixed wing that possibly broke the TFR? He was moving to the East but I thought WTF is he doing there. Anyone hear or see anything?
    Well anyone who's going Sat/Sun be prepared for a great show and dont forget the sunscreen!! It was pretty sunny out there today!

    I heard it on my scanner, the comm cart called and aircraft in the airspace behind the crowd (think they said a mile out) they do called for the diamond to continue the vertical pitch menuevor and Doc and another guy were looking for him. The plane cleared out after a few minutes, sure that guy will get an earfull. Side note there was a Cessna that wasn't responding yesterday to Republic Tower on final and the tower finally got hold of him on the ground and let his displease be known, pilot said his radio was malfunctioning.

    Multiple reports ID it as a P-47 in the Hudson!! Major SAR rescue going on. Hearing a lot of different reports but until confirmed not posting here!! Let's just say a prayer for whomever it might be!!
