    Interesting thought, with the Navy doing an "Operational Pause" will that effect the Hornet demo for the air show?

    FYI- Heard from my friend who was down at ACY today and he said the F-18 Hornet Demo team was already there,
    so hopefully that means they'll be flying at the practice show tomorrow for you. Good luck !!

    Yes I heard it when I was parking at Ballys. Thanks.
    Caught the Mig-17 that was awesome and the TBirds did a nice practice show. Maybe it was me but they sounded very loud today. Not that I'm complaining but I will complain it was hot. There was a stiff breeze but it was sunny and humid!! Tomorrow should be fun as long as the weather holds up which looks like it will.

    Well the skies are clear though cloudy which isn't a bad thing if you are on the beach for 3/4 hours. There is a 30% chance of a pop up thunderstorm around 2 but other than that it's good to go.
    Last night around 8 saw two C-130s flying in from the south along the ocean and then bank into the airport.
    Enjoy the show and enjoy the day to everyone out there!!!

    I was watching some of the show's live webcast today and it was too bad the
    KC-10, C-5, C-17 and E-2C never showed up to do their scheduled flybys ???

    yeah I was disappointed with that. Was really looking forward to seeing the BIG boys!! Still, it was an enjoyable show!! Clouds kept TBirds to a low show until a few minutes at the end when it cleared up. To be honest I was happy with the clouds!! Last year I was baked out there especially when the Birds were 40 minutes late. My 7th year coming in from Long Island and it doesn't get old hanging on the beach watching an airshow then retreating to my hotel room nearby for post show beers and food!!
