    Thank for the info

    Last time two years ago it was around 9AM. They come right back so the round tip, an hour or so? Then when they come back they usually do media flights so you'll see a numbeer of solo or two plane flights!!

    Yeah I have yet to see the warbirds do a practice show. The demo teams will perform along with a number of the aerobatic solo guys!! Hopefully the F-16, 35 pop by. Oh and for Rob Reider, also a practice show!! I'll probably head down around 11:30 or so.

    Was thinking the same thing about the practice and A-10 arrival! Oh well, rather hit up the practice.

    Does anyone have a schedule for Saturday yet? Have three young boys and want to bring our boat in just when the Angels start their maneuvers. Thanks

    I just saw on TV that a News 12 Reporter went up with the Breitling Jet Team today and I was just
    curious if anyone has heard who's going up with the Blues during their Media Flights on Friday??
