    Tropical Storm Bonnie should reach the Carolina coast tonight, forecast is for rain Sunday which will likely impact the race - thank you Steve for choosing the race rather than the air show!

    they had been having mechanical issues all weekend. They have changed plane numbers several times and have been doing work on the Tarmac quite a bit. At one point yesterday here were two 1s and the two seater went from 7 to 2 and I think 5.
    Friday night after the practice show I stopped to get pics of the Snowbirds and saw two of them in the Sheltair hangar!!
    And yes they don't use "Fat Albert Airlines" as their call sign but that would be cool.

    At Oceana a few years ago, the Blues were having maintenance trouble and one of the two-seaters blasted off in the morning to ferry a pilot down to Pensacola to fetch a spare plane. They got back and performed the afternoon show.

    Is the air show still broadcasted on the radio? I think it was an AM station.
    Thanks

    Yes, it made two passes on runway 19. On the second pass, it came in low and almost performed a bolter, as it came within a few few feet of touching down before gunning it and heading back up to head out to presumably McArthur as they headed East.

    Yes, great pics of it Moose, and like Joe said, here's a decent video I found of it also.
