    Usually, Thursday for Ba's should be arrival, go to beach for circling and markers, media flite. Friday is then Annapolis in the AM and full practice in the PM. Possible they changed the schedule this year?

    TFR starts at 11am on Thursday. Seem weird that it would be requested that early and then for them not to use it?

    True True...in all the years, Ive never seen a team NOT do a Friday practice. Id be shocked (and pissed!!) if they didnt go up Fri PM.

    Are the F-22 Raptors still staging out of ISP? Arrival date/time? I work under the flight path for Rwy 6 -24 so it might get noisy.

    Yeah I was off to the side of 32 hoping he would give us a pass and test the arresting gear a couple of times
