    Was talking with another guy and all of a sudden he popped out behind the trees and that was all. Guess he'll test the gear in the morning before the team comes in.

    As per this Notify NYC update:
    Notification issued 05-23-2018 at 9:00 AM. On 05-24-2018, at 8:45 AM, six U.S. Navy Blue Angel F/A-18 jets
    will be conducting a flyover in the vicinity of Manhattan, The Bronx and Queens. The aircraft are expected to
    fly
    over the Hudson River, north to the Tappan Zee Bridge and then to LaGuardia Airport.
    Wonder if this will delay their arrival a bit.

    OK from past experience with The Blue Angels ................

    After they arrive Thursday morning they will hold a morning brief with 1-6 while 7 does media flights. Then around 11:00AM 1-4 will go fly down to the beach and get their land marks and markers. A little later on 5 & 6 will fly down and meet up with 1-4 for the 6 plane formations. Then 1 - 4 will return to Republic while 5 & 6 get their marks for the solo passes. Then they will return to Republic for a full briefing.

    At 2:00PM the full team, 1-6 will go up for a full practice over the beach.

    Friday # 7 will be doing media flights all day. 1-6 will fly down for the USNA Graduation in the morning and then after returning will again go up for a full practice at 2:00PM on Friday.

    Anyone seen the schedule of flights for the show? Approx times beside 1400 for the Blues?
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Bummer to hear the news on the AAM FB page that the Spitfire will not be able attend their event this weekend.
    Hopefully they'll be able to reschedule it for June like they mentioned.

    Crap shoot. If you go to the beach tomorrow and see the F22 team on the boardwalk, tell them!

    Still in Annapolis. Wasn't able to overhear if that was planned or not.

    Overheard on LiveATC now, Oracle-1 is critically low on fuel and requesting to land. Tower initially declined to grant landing permission as they're clearing the airspace for the Blues. But after some back and forth, Tower is squeezing him in.
