    Nothing going to happen today!! Visibilty and ceiling are just well below minimums!! Right now I'm watching a live feed from ABC7NY who are out in Islip and no arrival yet at 5PM. Im wondering that along with the Practice Show will they go up in the morning to do their familiarization flight. Once again weather permitting!! Saturday looking the better of the 3 days for flying but low temps and clouds will definitely keep the beach crowd down, IMO,

    Yes and saw one of the State PD Hueys parked over at Atlantic. Usually they have two copters for SAR/Medevac for the show.
    Anyone know when the Warrior Team coming in? This weather is really screwing up arrivals.

    I know the practicing has been limited due to the weather, so do we know how this will affect tomorrow's practice? I know some were mentioning that the Thunderbirds might do the familiarization flight tomorrow morning. Do we know what time? And how about the others?

    Weather looks to be improving as we go through the day so Practice Show looks good.

    Yep, there's been a nice clearing over the beach for a while now. Slightly surprised no one had come out to get while the weather is, if not quite great, adequate. Hopefully the clouds that surround the beach in a semi-circle now, don't eventually sock it in.

    Blackhawk just did a low pass along the beach and I haven't seen a JFK arrival for about 10 minutes. Looks like we might be seeing something soon...and as soon as I post it a JFK arrival comes by

    Have a great view of the beach now. All is quiet right now, but I expect we will be seeing some action soon!

    Sorry was driving to the beach. Hard to say, canopies were up and cars were pulling in. No one was by the jets and couldn't tell if covers were on. Couldn't stop and look as there was a lot of security around.
