    Great to start getting some info! Has anyone ever done the beach on Thursdays for the circles and landmarks? I never did and was wondering how it is, thinking of heading down after their arrival at Republic.

    It's empty, easy to park and fun to watch. They usually go up around 2:00PM

    Cool, thanks guys! I've done the Friday practice in the past which is more enjoyable to get some nice shots as opposed to Saturday and Sunday.

    Here's an article that explains why the Blue Angels use a Mobile Aircraft Arresting System (MAAS) at Airfields they use for Air Shows:

    Well...the forecast is quickly turning to ****.

    Thunderstorms and rain all day from Friday through Monday. Saturday morning might the only dry spell.

    Anyone know if the F35 will do a flyby at the airport on Saturday and Sunday for the museum. And if it's doing the Friday airshow.
